    There are two options for protecting your child against measles, mumps, rubella, and varicella.

    Thanks to vaccines that protect against measles, mumps, rubella (German measles) and varicella (chickenpox), most children never have to suffer the misery of these diseases or their potentially serious complications.

    For the best protection against measles, mumps, rubella, and varicella, children need to be vaccinated twice: once when they are 12–15 months old, and again when they are 4–6 years old. There are two options for protecting children who are 12 months–12 years old against these diseases:

    • Getting two shots: the measles, mumps, and rubella (MMR) vaccine and the varicella vaccine

    • Getting one shot: the measles, mumps, rubella, and varicella (MMRV) vaccine

    For more information on vaccines, ask your child’s healthcare provider

    or call 800-CDC-INFO (800-232-4636)
