In brief: It's called vaccines

Vaccines for these diseases have been around for decades and are quite safe and effective when used as recommended.
Today in the US ,the MMR is a combinattion vaccine that includes 3 weakened but live viruses that are administered at 1 and 4-5 years. This confers immunity in 95% after both doses. There is no way to kill the viruses if you get these diseases.
