Rarely: The MMR (measles-mumps-rubella) vaccine is commonly given at 12 months of age with a booster prior to kindergarten entry. Following the first dose of mmr, about 95% of recipients will have protection against rubella. The booster is intended to produce immunity in those who did not respond to the first dose. As such, the risk of acquiring rubella in a vaccinated child is rare. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Why 2 MMR's: Actually the 2nd MMR is not given as a booster like all other vaccine series but because 15% of first MMR recipients are 'non responders' and the second dose is meant to catch those in that 15% group. Two MMR doses were found to catch most everyone where one dose missed. If you, instead, have serologic proof you responded to the first dose, repeat vaccine is not needed. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
Are you immune to rubella, measles, mumps if you received the MMR vaccine twice at age one and age six?
MMR at 1 and 4 years: The MMR shot (or measles, mumps and rubella shot) is indicated as a two dose series, given at least months apart after the age of 1 yo. Standard is that its given after 1 yo and then again at 4 yo. Adults can receive it anytime if previously unvaccinated or proven non-immune. The m, m and r components no longer come as separate shots at all, and must be given together as mmr. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Can one get rubella after a vaccine? What are the chances of a vaccinated individual getting rubella?
Possibly: 5% of people do not respond to the 1st dose of MMR (measles, mumps, and rubella) vaccine. A 2nd dose is thus given to catch this small group of non responders. Unlike other vaccines then, the second dose is not a booster--it is another chance for those 5 % who did not make antibodies the first time. If you were a non responder exposed to rubella after your first dose--you could catch the disease! ...Read more
I am 28 and just had the rubella vaccine. Is it absolutely necessary that I get a second shot next month?
Maybe not: If the vaccine is required in your state to attend school, then to avoid a second rubella vaccine, blood can be drawn to see if immunity is already established from the first vaccine. If you live in one of the 20 states that allow conscientious objection for vaccines, then none are required. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
