MMR (measles, mumps, rubella)

What is MMR (measles, mumps, rubella)?

Measles, mumps and rubella (MMR) are viral infections. Without vaccination, the viruses pose risks of complications leading to serious illness. In severe cases, they can be fatal.

What about the vaccine?

The MMR vaccine protects against measles, mumps and rubella and helps to avert potentially dangerous diseases. The MMR vaccine, which protects against measles, mumps and rubella, is strongly recommended for all children by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). The CDC also recommends that adults who have not had a vaccination or the diseases be immunized with an MMR vaccine. In most of the United States, one must prove that their children are vaccinated before they can enter school.
