What's the difference between the MMR and the mmrv?

MMRV (MMR+VARICELLA) MMRV is MMR Vaccine with Varicella(CHICKEN POX)VACCINE COMBINED IN ONE VACCIE.
Chicken pox. The mmrv contains the MMR vaccine (measles, mumps and rubella) plus the varicella vaccine (chicken pox). There is a higher amount of chicken pox vaccine in the mmrv vaccine than in the chicken pox vaccine alone. The mmrv vaccine has a higher rate of seizures caused by fever (febrile seizures) when compared to the MMR vaccine. The mmrv vaccine reduces the number of shots that the child has to get.
