Question: 

If I was given the MMR vaccine in 1984 (at ~12 months), do I need a second dose to guard against mumps?

Answer: 

You can find information on mumps vaccine recommendations on our mumps page. To be considered valid the dose(s) must be given at 12 months of age and older. 

If you are unsure if your immunizations are up-to-date, it is recommended that you follow up with your immunizing health care provider.  Your health care provider can review your immunization records and recommend and provide any missing vaccines.
