The Measles Mumps Rubella (MMR) Vaccine: Health 101

What's the recommended MMR schedule?

The MMR vaccine schedule includes one dose between 12 and 15 months and the second between ages 4 and 6.

The MMR vaccine is safe to be given along with other vaccines. It is also available as a combination shot with the chickenpox vaccine (called MMRV). This version of the shot isn't as readily available as the stand alone MMR and chickenpox vaccines, so it's not yet widely used. Children who receive MMRV may be more likely to experience side effects like rash, fever, and febrile seizures than those who get the MMR and chickenpox vaccines separately.
