The measles outbreak : OK so I've been vaccinated for measles as a child.. I've never had measles... So here's the question... When my daughter is born in about two months, does she need a vaccination? Don't the antibodies in me transfer over to her? Just a thought... I'm going to ask my doctor about this soon...
Your baby gets 2 types of immunity from you. 1 she gets from growing inside you but that declines over 6-8 weeks that’s IgG primarily. All of your previous immunizations and illnesses.
Breast milk gives her IgA but that’s only in her digestive tract not blood.
So she has some protection but not enough. She needs immunizations.
1st Measles is at 12 months approx
Here’s the childhood schedule
CDC is invaluable
