Question: 

Is it possible for me to receive MMR vaccine? I’m age 64

Answer: 

People born before 1970 (1957 for health care workers) are generally assumed to have acquired immunity to measles and mumps from natural infection. Adults born before 1957 are assumed to have protection against rubella from natural infection. Therefore, the MMR vaccine is not routinely recommended for these people. If you have further questions regarding the vaccine, please contact your primary care giver.
