Delaying Measles Vaccine Could Increase Risk of Seizures

Kids Who Receive Measles Shot Late Have Higher Risk of Seizures

Children who receive their measles vaccination on the schedule recommended by the Centers For Disease Control and Prevention — between 12- to 15-months-old — have a lower risk of experiencing seizures or fever shortly after the vaccination, The Huffington Post reports. According to a study published in JAMA Pediatrics, the measles vaccine can have a small risk of resulting in seizures brought on by fever one to two weeks after the vaccination. In fact, children who received the measles vaccine later than recommended were 6.5 times more likely to experience a febrile seizure 7 to 10 days after the vaccination.

For more information on the risk of seizures after the measles vaccine, read the whole story on The Huffington Post.
