  • MMR (Measles, Mumps, and Rubella)
  • Vaccine Recommendations

If there is an outbreak in my area, can we vaccinate children younger than 12 months?

MMR can be given to children as young as 6 months of age who are at high risk of exposure such as during international travel or a community outbreak. However, doses given BEFORE 12 months of age cannot be counted toward the 2-dose series for MMR.
