How many readers—parents, in particular—know that there are several vaccines that should not be given (injected) together at the same time under any circumstances?  Yes, that’s a fact!  Those vaccines are the MMR (Measles, Mumps and Rubella) and the Varicella (Chickenpox) vaccines.

And yet, there’s Merck’s MMRV—Measles, Mumps, Rubella and Varicella!

One of the comments made to one of my blogs by “Somitcw” stated,

It has been known for decades that having measles and chickenpox virus infections at the same time doubles the rate of measles caused febrile seizures. That means even more brain damage.

It doesn’t matter if the viruses have been insidiously attenuated to not show symptoms or not.  Comparing MMR and MMRV outcome proves that it is still true.
