  • MMR (Measles, Mumps, and Rubella)
  • Pregnancy and Postpartum Considerations

How should all people capable of child-bearing be screened for pregnancy before MMR vaccination?

ACIP recommends that people capable of bearing children be asked if they are currently pregnant or attempting to become pregnant. Vaccination should be deferred for those who answer “yes.” Those who answer “no” should be advised to avoid pregnancy for 4 weeks following vaccination. Pregnancy testing is not necessary.
