Learn More about Measles, Mumps, and Rubella



What are measles, mumps, and rubella?

Measles is a disease caused by the rubeola virus. It is most commonly associated with a rash that spreads across the body of those that are infected. Measles can have severe consequences for people, particulary young children, that are infected. Measles was declared eliminated from the United States in 2000, but several measles outbreaks have occurred across the country since that time. To protect against the disease, the CDC recommends that all individuals receive the MMR vaccine.

Mumps is a disease caused by the paramyxovirus virus. It is most commonly associated with pain, tenderness, and swelling in the salivary glands. Most cases of mumps results in mild or no symptoms, but some cases can be more severe. The number of mumps cases have fallen significantly since the introduction of the MMR vaccine.

Rubella is a disease caused by the rubella virus. Many people infected with rubella will not experience any symptoms, but when symptoms are present, the most common symptom is a red rash that spreads across the body. Rubella was previously a common disease in the United States. However, it is has now been considered to be eliminated due to the MMR vaccine.



Who is at risk for measles, mumps, and rubella?

The introduction of the MMR vaccine has helped nearly eliminate measles, mumps, and rubella in the United States. However, these diseases are still present in other countries and travelers to these countries may be exposed to these diseases. Visitors to the United States from other countries may also spread these diseases to others. Of all groups, young children under the age of five and pregnant women whom have not been vaccinated are at greatest risk for contracting these diseases.



What are the symptoms of measles, mumps, and rubella?

According, to the CDC, the most common measles symptoms are:

  • High fever

  • Cough

  • Runny nose

  • Red, watery eyes

  • White spots inside the mouth

  • Measles rash (appears 3-5 days after infection)

Measles symptoms tend to appear 7 to 14 days after a person has become infected.

Symptoms for mumps generally appear 16-18 days after infection, but can fall anywhere from 12-25 after infection. Symptoms for mumps are:

  • Puffy cheeks

  • Swollen jaw

  • Fever

  • Headache

  • Muscle aches

  • Tiredness

  • Loss of appetite

Many people with rubella will not experience any symptoms. However, when symptoms are present, the most common symptoms are:

  • Red rash the covers the body

  • Fever

  • Headache

  • Mild pink eye

  • General discomfort

  • Swollen and enlarged lymph nodes

  • Cough

  • Runny Nose


The MMR vaccine

The MMR vaccine for measles, mumps, and rubella was first licensed and made available for use in the United States in 1971. Previously, separate vaccines for the individual diseases had been licensed and made available to the public.

Currently, the CDC recommends that children receive two doses of the MMR vaccine. The first dose between 12-15 months of age and the second dose between 4-6 years of age. Adults that have not been vaccinated should receive at least one dose of the vaccine.

After receiving the vaccine, a person can still become infected with measles, mumps, or rubella. However, the symptoms and severity of the disease are typically much milder in people that have been vaccinated.

What is a measles/mumps/rubella immunity screen?

A measles/mumps/rubella immunity screen is a test that checks for immunity due to prior illness or vaccination. The test does not diagnose measles, mumps, or rubella.



Why get tested for measles/mumps/rubella immunity?

Schools, workplaces, or other entities may require proof of immunity to measles/mumps, and rubella within their requirements. Additionally, if you are unsure if you have previously been vaccinated for, or been infected, by measles, mumps, or rubella, a screening will allow you to confirm your status.
