Some vaccines contain live viruses which can be spread to others in the days after a vaccination.

Thank you so much! I wanted to share the info. I thought it did. Merck is making a LOT of money scaring the heck out of everyone with or around babies

Quoting Mrs.Salz:

It's a toxoid (weakened) vaccine and yes, it can shed.

Yes it does. If a child has been recently vaccinated against it they can spread it to other people. Pretty cool, huh? No vaccines for us!
