Question: 

are measles vaccines typically given to kids at school and if so what grade?

Answer: 

The measles, mumps, rubella (MMR) vaccine is routinely given to children at 12 months and 4-6 years of age. However, there is currently an MMR vaccine immunization catch-up throughout BC for children who are behind in their routine schedule. Learn more about the MMR vaccine catch-up program here. Contact your local health unit to ask about the school-based program in your area. Use the health unit finder.
