Can you tell me what you suggest if im vaccinated for MMR (measles, mumps and rubella) can I still pass the mumps onto others?

In brief: Not that likely

Even though you have received the MMR vaccination, it is still possible to be infected.
It makes it less likely, but it is still possible. Immunity may wane over time and booster vaccinations are given to help the immune cells remember the response to fight the disease.
