The inmunization panel is a blood test that checks if you are immune to Measles, Mumps and Rubella and Varicella Zozter.
It measures your antibody levels to get a sense for whether your immune system has the capability to respond to an infection with one of these diseases.
- Measles: The disease spreads through the air by respiratory droplets produced from coughing or sneezing.Measles symptoms don't appear until 10 to 14 days after exposure. They include cough, runny nose, inflamed eyes, sore throat, fever, and a red, blotchy skin rash.)
- Mumps: affects the parotid glands, salivary glands below and in front of the ears. The disease spreads through infected saliva.Some people experience no symptoms. When symptoms occur, they include swollen, painful salivary glands, fever, headache, fatigue, and appetite loss.Treatment focuses on symptom relief. Recovery takes about two weeks. The disease can be prevented by the MMR vaccine.
- Rubella: The disease can spread through direct contact with the saliva or mucus of an infected person, or through the air by respiratory droplets produced from coughing or sneezing.Symptoms often appear two to three weeks after exposure, and also include mild fever and headache.Rubella has been declared eliminated in the US. Parents are advised to vaccinate children with the MMR vaccine to prevent its re-emergence.
- Varicella Zozter (Chickenpox): is highly contagious to those who haven't had the disease or been vaccinated against it.The most characteristic symptom is an itchy, blister-like rash on the skin.Chickenpox can be prevented by a vaccine. Treatment usually involves relieving symptoms although high-risk groups may receive antiviral medications.
