What Is The MMR Vaccine?

The MMR vaccine is recommended by the CDC and protects recipients against measles, mumps and rubella. The MMR vaccine is administered to children, usually in two doses at age 12-15 months and again sometime between the age of 4-6 years old. Sometimes, the MMR vaccine is also combined with a vaccine for chicken pox (varicella), which is called the MMRV vaccine.

Risks And Reactions To The MMR Vaccine

There are several possible risks and reactions that are associated with the MMR vaccine. These risks and reactions range in severity, including:

  • Fever
  • Rash
  • Swelling of the glands
  • Seizures (resulting from fever)
  • Pain and joint stiffness

Occasionally, the MMR vaccine reactions and side effects can be quite severe. In the event medical problems and issues arise, you may be eligible to file a claim with the VICP.
