If you were born at that time, it would not have been common for you to get a second dose of MMR.That practice was not common until the 90's. Given the present outbreaks in the US, it would be prudent for anyone who did not have the disease and was born before the mid 90"s to consider a MMR booster.

Persons vaccinated before 1979 with either killed mumps vaccine or mumps vaccine of unknown type who are at high risk for mumps infection should be considered for revaccination with 2 doses of MMR vaccine. High risk adults are healthcare workers, travel internationally or are college students. Your doctor can send a blood test to check the status of your immunity before repeating vaccinations.
