Isn't there a waiting period after receiving the MMR vaccine before you can get a PPD skin test?

In brief: 4-6 weeks

Typically there should be 4-6 weeks from the time MMR is given until the PPD should be given.
If the PPD is given too soon after the MMR it can cause an inaccurate PPD test result.
