Side Effects from MMR Immunization
MEASLES. About 1 child in 5 will get a mild rash or fever beginning a week or two after vaccination. These reactions last for a few days.

MUMPS. Very few children suffer any ill effects from mumps vaccine. Occasionally a child will get a mild fever one or two weeks after vaccination, or swollen glands in the cheeks or under the jaw. More serious reactions are extremely rare.

RUBELLA. About 1 child out of 7 will get a rash or swelling in the lymph glands after getting rubella vaccine. This usually happens within a week or two after the shot and lasts 1 or 2 days. Also, about 1 child out of 100 will have some pain or stiffness in the joints, which can last from a few days to a few weeks. There is a small chance (less than 1 in 100) that a child will have painful swelling of the joints (arthritis) after getting rubella vaccine. This usually lasts only a few days, but it can last longer, and can come and go. These joint problems occur more often in adults, especially women.

Febrile seizures (seizures caused by a fever) have occasionally been reported among children who have gotten MMR vaccine. These usually happen 1 or 2 weeks after the shot and are caused by the fever that can accompany vaccination rather than the vaccine itself. Children recover from febrile seizures quickly, and they do not cause permanent harm.

There have been reports of children getting encephalitis (inflammation of the brain) after an MMR shot. This happens so rarely - less than once in a million shots - that experts are not sure whether the MMR vaccine causes this problem or whether it simply happens by chance. Remember, though, that if the same million children got measles, about 1,000 of them would get encephalitis, 6,000 to 7,000 would have convulsions, and several hundred would die. The benefits of MMR vaccine greatly outweigh the slight risk.

MMR, like any vaccine or medicine, could trigger a severe allergic reaction in a child who was allergic to one of the vaccine's components. But severe allergic reactions to childhood vaccines are very rare (estimated at around one per million doses), and no child is ever known to have died from an allergic reaction to a vaccine.
