  • MMR (Measles, Mumps, and Rubella)
  • Contraindications & Precautions

I have a patient who is traveling internationally and needs MMR vaccine. He recently received an injectable steroid. How long should he wait before receiving MMR vaccine?

There is no need to wait a specific interval before giving MMR. An injectable steroid dose is not considered immunosuppressive for the purpose of vaccination decisions, and so there is no concern about safety or efficacy of MMR.
