I babysit a little girl who is not up to date with her shots, Is that putting my daughter in danger?

The little girl hasn't had any shots since her first year set.

  • I'm no expert but I would think as long as your daughter is up to date on hers it should be ok.

  • I would think so. The little girl would not be able to go to any daycare or school without updated shots...

  • If your daughter is vaccinated than she's protected. That's what vaccinations are for.

  • i depends on how far she is off . but most of the older moms would still expose there kids to others with chicken pox . it has to be a jugment call

  • The only person at risk is the child who has not had their shots. Your daughter has had hers and therefore should be fine.

  • you might want to make sure all of your vaccines are up to date though. If you had the rubella shot when you were a kid, you should have the test done to see if you are still protected. when I was pregnant with my dd, they checked to see if i was still protected from rubella and i was not, so i had to get the vaccine. Just something to think about, you wouldnt want to get sick either.
