Hello

Dr. Owen :

Since you have been vaccinated - you are VERY safe

You can also check what is known as a Rubella 'titer' and this should say you are Immune

Please if you have more questions, please ask

Dr. Owen :

Dr. Owen :

The Only time I see women who are Not protected is when they come from countries that do Not vaccinate the population - such as from Mexico

Customer: Wat a out the measles ??im super nervous an scared
Dr. Owen :

The Measles is in the MMR - it covers Measles, Mumps and Rubella viruses

Dr. Owen :

So you and the baby are covered for ALL

Dr. Owen :

And, you will not get rubella or measles or mumps at all

Customer: Sorry just feeling quiet traumatised from previous events !!!! I'm really happy to e pregant
Dr. Owen :

Dr. Owen :

Parvo virus is different

Dr. Owen :
