Possibly: Studies show that MMR in a single dose is effective in protecting 80% with a second dose, usually given here at 4-5 bring that protection up to 95%. MMR does not protect against chickenpox, although a vaccine is available. Rashes are common to many viral illnesses, not just the ones in the vaccine. If there are many unimmunized kids in the region the chances of getting such CHD increases.
