Purpose of the MMR Vaccine

MMR vaccinations aid in the prevention of rubella, mumps, and measles. Although the live viruses in the MMR vaccine are weakened, they cannot cause measles, mumps, or rubella in healthy individuals.

Measles, mumps, and rubella are contagious illnesses that can cause major difficulties and are easily transmitted from person to person through the air.

Measles: The virus that causes measles produces fever, rash, runny nose, and eye irritation. Ear infections, lung infections, seizures (jerking and staring), brain damage, and even death are possible outcomes.

Mumps: The virus that causes mumps can cause fever, headaches, sore muscles, appetite loss, and enlarged salivary glands. Meningitis, an infection of the brain and spinal cord covering, deafness, excruciating ovaries or testicles swelling, and in rare cases, sterility (inability to conceive) can result from it.


Why is it critical to get MMR Vaccine?

According to the National Childhood Immunisation Schedule (NCIS) in Singapore, all children should start receiving two doses at least four weeks apart at the age of twelve months.

It is required by law to receive a measles vaccination. Getting this immunisation is also necessary in order to enrol in school.

Adults (18 years of age or older) who have not received a vaccination or who do not exhibit any signs of prior infection or immunity are recommended to receive two doses of the Singapore National Adult Immunisation Schedule (NAIS) (the first dose, and the second dose four weeks after the first dose).
