Measles Vaccine and Egg Allergy

Measles Vaccine and Egg Allergy | Parenting & Education | Scoop.it
In light of the recent outbreak of measles, which has now grown to more than 150 cases, we have been asked an increased number of questions about the safety of the MMR vaccine (measles-mumps-rubell...
Tova Ovits's insight:

The recommendations of the Advisory Committee on Immunization at the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) and the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) acknowledge that the MMR vaccine can be safely administered to all patients with egg allergy, without the use of special protocols or desensitization procedures. These recommendations have been based, in part, on scientific evidence that supports the routine use of one-dose administration of the MMR vaccine to patients with an egg allergy. This includes those patients with a history of severe, generalized anaphylactic reactions to egg. Additionally, egg-allergic children may be vaccinated with MMR without prior skin testing.

9 Things To Do When Your Toddler Is Driving You Nuts

9 Things To Do When Your Toddler Is Driving You Nuts | Parenting & Education | Scoop.it
Does your toddler drive you nuts sometimes? Here are 8 fantastic tips to help when your toddler is driving you crazy and nothing seems to be working.
Tova Ovits's insight:

"Unfortunately, toddlers don’t have the words or skills to be able to eloquently tell you want they need, which is how unhelpful labels like “the terrible two’s” have become so popular. They’re just 2 years old – meaning they have only been on this crazy planet for a measly 24 months. I find that helps me to put things back into perspective. They can’t be expected to know and do and think the way we would like."
