Here is a link to a similar discussion that took place on the board a couple years ago. This is what our expert at the time, Roy Benaroch, had to say:
"There's no special or extra harm in getting an extra dose...Another dose of MMR will not be extra-harmful. That is, every dose of every vaccine has a very small chance of a serious reaction. An extra MMR doesn't increase that chance."
Your niece should be perfectly fine having accidentally gotten a third dose.
You might also want to ask her doctor about the possibility of loose anagen syndrome , which is most often first diagnosed in childhood and affects girls more so than boys. It's characterized by hair that never seems to grow and a scalp that is usually thin especially at the back. The hair is also easily pulled out. This syndrome usually improves with age.
I don't think that the moles are the cause of her poor hair growth, but it is important to keep an eye on them and to have your pediatrician or a dermatologist look at them regularly for any abnormalities or changes.
Urine color normally ranges from a pale yellow (almost straw colored) to deep amber depending on its concentration. Clear urine could just mean that he is well hydrated (or over hydrated) as you said before, but in some cases no color to the urine can signal diabetes (which your doctor ruled out) or a kidney disorder. There is probably no cause for alarm, but it is good that your doctor is being thorough. You might find the chart in this article helpful. Please keep us updated!
