MMR vaccines are safe and effective in preventing measles, mumps, and rubella. For children, the MMR vaccine is a two-dose series with the first dose administered between 12 and 15 months and the second dose administered between 4 and 6 years of age. Unvaccinated teenagers and adults are eligible to receive one MMR vaccine.

Measles is a serious disease that is very contagious and mostly affects those that are unvaccinated. Measles can be particularly dangerous for babies and young children. Some common symptoms include high fever, cough, runny nose, and a rash that spreads from the head to other parts of the body. Severe illness from measles can lead to hospitalization, brain swelling, or could be fatal. Measles is spread through the air and can remain in a location up to two hours after an infected person has left. Measles can spread from someone up to 4 days before they develop symptoms. If you believe you have been in contact with measles or develop symptoms stay home and contact your healthcare provider. According to the CDC, as of January 25, 2024, 9 cases of measles have been reported in the US. This is a good reminder to stay up to date on MMR vaccinations to protect against measles.
