Who can get ProQuad?

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.

Considering this, 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.

Subsequently, question is, 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.

Additionally, what vaccines are in ProQuad?

ProQuad® (Measles, Mumps, Rubella and Varicella Virus Vaccine Live) is a vaccine indicated for active immunization for the prevention of measles, mumps, rubella, and varicella in children 12 months through 12 years of age.

Is ProQuad frozen?

Before reconstitution, store the lyophilized vaccine continuously in a reliably maintained freezer (eg, chest, frost-free) for up to 18 months. ProQuad may be stored at refrigerator temperature (36ºF to 46ºF, 2ºC to 8ºC) for up to 72 hours prior to reconstitution.
