Mumps vaccine is given as MMR (measles rubella mumps) vaccine. The first dose is 12-15 months and the second dose is 4-6 years. It is not effective after the onset of infection, but it can be effective in protecting the child if it has not yet become infected with a germ. Despite the vaccine, mumps can be seen, but its severity is usually less. If your children are over 4 years old and have not had their second vaccination, it is a good idea to have them as soon as possible.
