MMR vaccines contain live measles, mumps and rubella viruses that have been weakened (attenuated). These stimulate the immune system to produce antibodies for protection but do not cause disease in healthy people. Usual dosing in children is two doses - first at 9 to 12 months and second at 16 to 24 months of age.
