The Antibody Blood Titer Test

The above link brings you to the New Jersey Health and Senior Services Department website where you can read and print out the pamphlets about Holly's Law. The information found in the pamphlet should be given to parents whose children are between the ages of 4 and 6. If the information is not provided by your physician, you should inquire about this test prior to giving your child the second MMR.

  • To get the blood test done you have to hold your baby down so they can get enough blood to test it. Its not usually done the first time. Good luck with that!

  • i agree....the mmr vaccine puts kids at high risk for autism...the amount of kids with autism increased when doctors started giving this unnecessary vaccine after birth...measles, mumps, and rubella are all minor diseases that children can only get once and its safe for them to get these as children. i'd rather have my kid sick for a few days than struggling their entire life with autism

  • Too much mumbo-jumbo to read through...can someone just plainly state what "Holly's Law" entails?

  • "The Antibody Titer Law
    (Holly’s Law, NJSA 26:2N-8-11),
    passed on January 14, 2004,
    concerns vaccination of
    children with the measles,
    mumps, rubella (MMR) vaccine.
    The law allows parents to seek
    testing to determine a child’s
    immunity to measles, mumps,
    and rubella, before receiving the
    second dose of the vaccine."

  • A Vaccine Information
    Statement (VIS) should be
    provided to you each time a
    vaccine is given. Make sure
    to READ and UNDERSTAND
    each VIS before getting
    vaccines for your child.

  • Antibody Titer:
    An antibody titer (pronounced ty-
    ter) is a test that can be done to
    find out if your child is immune.
    For this test a blood sample is
    sent to a laboratory and tested
    for antibodies. If a person has
    developed a sufficient level of
    antibodies, they may not need
    the second dose of vaccine.
