Leflunomide and Neutropaenia

Following on from recent post Im about to start wash out for Leflunomide. Have had to stop meds due to low neutrophils (0.7). RA nurse has said to have low tolerance for contacting GP or 111 if I feel more ill than I already do and to avoid people who are ill and maintain good hygiene. My question is my daughter had to have MMR vaccine yesterday which is a live one. Should i be concerned? Trying to find advice online but no joy so far...

I think I'd be extra cautious and avoid contact - tell her why first, though.

Thanks yes Rheum nurse suggested avoiding for a day or two as she might get mild symptoms.
