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

We require a pregnancy test for all our 7th graders before giving an MMR. Is this necessary?

No. ACIP recommends that anyone 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 one month following vaccination.
