Measles, Mumps and Rubella (MMR) and Vaccine Injury
What is the MMR Vaccine?
The MMR vaccine, also known by its trade name M-M-R II, is a single vaccine that protects against three diseases: Measles, Mumps, and Rubella.
The CDC recommends that MMR immunization occur in two rounds of vaccinations.
The first dose is typically administered between 12 and 15 months old, and the second shot is usually given between 4 and 6 years of age
Most children and adults who get the MMR vaccination have few or no side effects. However, there are rare cases where the patient has a severe and debilitating reaction to the MMR shot.
The federal government set up the Vaccine Injury Compensation Program (VICP) to help people who experience severe injuries. A federal trust fund has paid out billions of dollars to compensate vaccine-injured patients across the country.

There are some basic requirements to be eligible to file a claim in the Vaccine Injury Compensation Program:

- The claim must be filed within the statute of limitations. That means you have a short window of time to file a claim.
- The vaccine injury must last for at least 6 months after the vaccination was given.
- Or, the reaction to the vaccination resulted in a hospital stay and surgery
- Or, the reaction must have resulted in death.
- You must file a claim within a certain period of time. There is a statute of limitations to file in the NVICP. It’s best to discuss this with an attorney to know when the clock on your case started ticking.
