In brief: 7-12 days

The MMR (measles-mumps-rubella) vaccine is typically given at 12 months of age and prior to kindergarten entry.
About 5% of recipients may have a mild rash and/or fever about 7-12 days following administration of the vaccine. The rash and fever are self-limited, resolving on their own.
