Dr. Rose  Obstetrics MMR (morbilli mumps, rubella)


MMR (morbilli mumps, rubella)

MMR is an immunization vaccine against measles, mumps and rubella. It must be received at 15 months and at age 11. This vaccination might trigger unpleasant reactions as it contains the attenuated viruses of these infections.
Symptoms might appear in 7-9 days after receiving the dose, the most common ones being fever and occasionally the characteristic rashes of measles and rubella. Very rarely, the main symptom of mumps, bilateral salivary gland swelling might also occur. However, these symptoms usually cease in 48-72 hours. Until then, it is advised to use antipyretics if needed.
