Need vaccination for mmr
I am applying to PhD in the US, and they want to get immunized for MMR, or show that I am immune to it, before I reach there. Exact requirement quoted by them - "Proof of TWO MMR – Measles , Mumps and  Rubella vaccinations . The first  vaccination is  given at or after 1 year of age and the  second  is commonly given  at or after 4 - 6 years of age. If your records do not reflect this immunization schedule, t he two MMR  vaccinations must be at least  28 days apart from each administrated date . Note: The first MMR must be at or after 1 year of age . OR Proof of a  POSITIVE titer test that shows immunity to  RUBEOLA or MMR."

Just get your titers done. It will show if you are immunized or not. If not then get 2 doses 28 days apart.
