MMR Immunization And Velcade

MMR Immunization And Velcade

Has anyone had any issues getting a MMR immunization while being on Velcade?

I just saw my MM oncologist yesterday. I'm 13 months post transplant. I received DPT, shingles, pneumonia, & Hepatitis vaccines all at once, 2 in each arm. No MMR for 2 years as it's a live vaccine.

Hey Betty, I haven't had my MMR either. I just checked with my doctor. They told me they always recommend getting it two years after transplant. I'm 5 years past transplant. He wanted me to get another Covid booster, then get the MMR two weeks later. So I think you should probably wait the full two years. Love Donna πŸ’œπŸ’—πŸ’•
