Resource Properties

Abstract:

This two-page Vaccine Information Statement (VIS) educates people about the measles, mumps, rubella, and varicella (MMRV) vaccine. It describes symptoms and effects of measles, mumps, rubella (German measles), and varicella (Chickenpox). It explains who may be given the MMRV vaccine, provides a recommended vaccination schedule for children, and identifies who should not get the vaccine or should wait. It describes risks and side effects, distinguishes between mild, moderate, and severe (very rare) problems, and what to look for and what to do in the event of a serious allergic reaction. Contact information for the National Vaccine Injury Compensation Program (VICP) is provided, along with tips for how people can learn more about the MMRV vaccine.

The English-language VIS was created by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) National Center for Immunization and Respiratory Diseases. The translations are provided by the Immunization Action Coalition (IAC) and its partner organizations.
