In brief: Fever, rash
Most people don't have a reaction to the MMR vaccine but there are cases with symptoms ranging from mild to severe mild side effects include slight fever, rash and swelling of glands in the cheek or neck.
Moderate reactions include seizure and stiffness of extremities. Severe effects include serious allergic reactions which occur in less than 1 out of a million doses.

In brief: Redness and swelling
The side effects of the MMR vaccine are similar to those of other vaccines.
These include fever; redness, swelling and pain at the injection site; rash; swollen glands; and joint pain. These side effects eventually go away on their own. Despite past concerns about the safety of this vaccine, several studies have found no link between the MMR vaccine and autism.
