Similarly, can adults receive ProQuad?
FOR SUBCUTANEOUS ADMINISTRATION ONLY The first dose is usually administered at 12 to 15 months of age but may be given anytime through 12 years of age. If a second dose of measles, mumps, rubella, and varicella vaccine is needed, ProQuad may be used. This dose is usually administered at 4 to 6 years of age.
Furthermore, can ProQuad be given to a 15 year old? ProQuad: Each 0.5 mL dose of ProQuad is administered subcutaneously. The first dose is usually administered at 12 to 15 months of age. A second dose, if needed, is usually administered at 4 to 6 years of age.
Similarly one may ask, at what age can you give Mmrv?
MMRV vaccine may be given to children 12 months through 12 years of age, usually: First dose at 12 through 15 months of age. Second dose at 4 through 6 years of age.
Can Mmrv be given IM?
All live injected vaccines (MMR, varicella, and yellow fever) are recommended to be given subcutaneously. However, intramuscular administration of any of these vaccines is not likely to decrease immunogenicity, and doses given IM do not need to be repeated. We often need to give MMR vaccine to large adults.
