Researchers looked at 125,000 MMRV and nearly 600,000 MMR+V vaccinations of children ages 12 to 23 months and found that these didn’t increase children’s risk of seven types of neurological, blood, or immune system disorders. Parents of one-year-olds can opt for the MMR+V to reduce the risk of febrile seizures. The study is published in the journal Pediatrics. (usnews.com)
