Dad: No I didn’t have the jab because when I was a kid they didn’t have MMR and scientist didn’t discover it had existed until the 1960’s when it was discovered by Maurice Hilleman while at Merck.
Kieron (brother): Yes I had my MMR jab and it was successfully good because I didn’t become ill.
Mum: Yes I did. It’s a good idea because it saved a lot of children from serious illness.
Grandma: No because they didn’t have it then.
Granddad: No because my granddad was born in 1935
Kevin (friend): I had my MMR jab when I was just over 1 year old because I had to move country.
Family: We think the MMR jab is a good idea for a vaccine because you have it when you’re little but the bad thing is that not all adults get it because it wasn’t discovered when they were little.
Cousin: Yes but only when I was very little

The MMR vaccine is an immunization shot against measles, mumps and rubella (also called German measles). It was first developed by Maurice Hilleman while at Merck in the late 1960s.
The vaccine is a mixture of three live attenuated viruses, administered via injection. The shot is generally administered to children around the age of one year, with a second dose before starting school (i.e. age 4/5). The second dose is not a booster; it is a dose to produce immunity in the small number of persons (2–5%) who fail to develop measles immunity after the first dose. In the United States, the vaccine was licensed in 1971 and the second dose was introduced in 1989. It is widely used around the world; since introduction of its earliest versions in the 1970s, over 500 million doses have been used in over 60 countries. As with all vaccinations, long-term effects and efficacy are subject to continuing study. The vaccine...
