MMR vaccines

This vaccine is given in two doses and is designed to protect children from measles, mumps and rubella – common childhood diseases which can lead to serious conditions such as meningitis, encephalitis and deafness.

For adults

Adults born from 1970 or later should have at least one dose of MMR vaccine unless they fall into an exception group.

Due to the risk of birth defects with rubella, all women of childbearing age should have the MMR vaccination unless they're currently pregnant or have confirmation of immunity from their doctor.

Adults at greater risk of exposure to measles or mumps get a second dose of MMR vaccine, given four weeks after the first dose:

  • Those at risk who may need the second dose of MMR vaccine
  • Have been exposed to measles or mumps or live in an area where an outbreak has occurred
  • Are teachers or students in colleges
  • Travel internationally
  • Work in healthcare facilities

The vaccine is given as a single injection.

For children

Two doses of MMR vaccine are given after the child’s first year between 12 and 15 months of age. The second dose is given at 4 to 6 years of age. This provides full protection for children from these unpleasant diseases.
