Nurse didnt inject MMR vaccine properly
An_257551 posted:
I went for MMR vaccination. When nurse tried to give the vaccine I felt severe pain and I moved my hand. She didnt able to inject it sufficient amount and I found most of the vaccine was left in the syringe. Am I protected from MMR?
atti_editor responded:

It might be a good idea to call the doctor's office who administered the shot and explain what happened. They may have an idea of how much of the vaccine got into your system and what this means for your future protection against MMR. Did the nurse say anything after this happened?

Best wishes,
