MMR Vaccine FAQs

MMR stands for measles, mumps, rubella. The deadliest of all childhood illnesses, measles is a contagious respiratory disease caused by a virus. Symptoms of measles include fever, runny nose, cough, and a rash all over the body. The disease spreads very easily, so it is important to protect against infection.

Mumps is a contagious viral disease that can cause deafness, meningitis (infection of the brain and spinal cord covering), and painful swelling of the testicles or ovaries. Symptoms may include fever, headache, muscle aches, tiredness, and loss of appetite, and swelling of the salivary glands.

Rubella, or German measles, is a contagious viral disease that causes fever and rash for two to three days. It is spread by contact with an infected person, through coughing and sneezing.

The measles, mumps, and rubella (MMR) vaccine is one of the many routine immunizations children receive in the first years of life. Children receive two doses of this vaccine. The first dose of MMR is given at 12 to 15 months of age. The second dose can be given 4 weeks later, but is usually given before the start of kindergarten at 4 to 6 years of age.

If you are planning any international travel and you have never been immunized against measles, mumps, and rubella, you should receive the MMR vaccine.

While measles rarely occurs in the US anymore, it is still common in many parts of the world, including parts of Europe, Asia, the Pacific, and Africa. Of the cases of measles reported in the US, most result from people getting infected in other countries and bringing it back to the US.

Anyone who is not protected against measles is at risk of getting infected when they travel internationally.
