MMR Dosage

General MMR Dosage Information

Some considerations to keep in mind with the MMR vaccine include the following:
 
  • This vaccine is typically given as two doses. The second dosage is not a booster, per se; instead, it is a second dose to provide protection for the individuals who did not adequately respond to the first dose, for whatever reason.
     
  • As with other live vaccines, MMR is injected subcutaneously (just under the skin), preferably on the upper arm.
     
  • People can be vaccinated if they have a minor illness, such as the common cold. However, the vaccine should be postponed if the individual is moderately or severely ill.
     
  • If you are unsure about anything related to your dosage or MMR dosing in general, please talk with your doctor, nurse, or pharmacist.
