We give two doses of mMMR to children before they start school.The first dose is given at or after age of 1 year,and second dose is given from 4,before the child enters kindergarden class.If a child was never vaccinated before going to school then you can give two doses a month or more apart,so 6 month in that situation is OK

In brief: Vaccine
Mmr can be given 1 month apart, therefor seperated by 6m is appropriate as long as both are given after the child is 12 months old.
