In brief: No

A small percentage of children develop rash after getting MMR (measles-mumps-rubella) vaccine, but in 7-10 days.

In brief: Yes

Since the viruses in the MMR are weakened but live viruses, they can cause a rash.
Rarely is there fever or any illness. If you're worried, call your doctor or nurse.
