If a child got mumps, does he still need mmr vaccine?


A child with a clinical diagnosis of acute mumps and laboratory confirmation of the same is considered to be immune to mumps. If a child is immune to mumps, the Measles, Mumps, Rubella (MMR) vaccine is still recommended for protection against measles and rubella. 

For more information about the MMR vaccine, please see the HealthLinkBC File: Measles, Mumps, Rubella (MMR) Vaccine
