There are no major illness trends related to MMR.
MMR vaccines, as well as other vaccines, do not cause autism. Extensive research has been done into the relationship between autism and vaccines and none has been found. T…he doctor who originally reported a correlation has since retracted his statements, admitted his results were faked, and lost his medical license.
The Centers for Disease Control establish guidelines every year for the Immunization Schedule. The link has been posted here in Wiki. Scroll down to "Related Links"
Mumps, Measles, Rubella
mmr stands for measles,mumps and rubella.
I spent just Rs 200 for MMR

MMR vaccine protects you against Measles, Mumps, and Rubella. You need 2-3 doses on the proper schedule to become immune. You should get a blood test (titer) to confirm that t…he shots worked and gave your body immunity (some people need more shots and a small few people never seem to "take" to the vaccine, especially the mumps part- also the mumps part can be spoiled by heat during storage). Many healthcare workers, teachers, and other professionals are required to get this vaccine to protect themselves and others from these diseases. MMR is a "trivalent" (3-in-one) vaccine against the following 3 diseases: Measles is a rough disease that we don't see as much of anymore because of the success of vaccines- but it could come back if people stop taking the vaccine. Mumps is less common these days but there was a recent outbreak in New York City's Brooklyn area because groups of people stopped getting the vaccine for their kids. The mumps part of the vaccine can be spoiled by heat, so if the vaccine was not refrigerated properly, it can fail- while the other two parts are still effective. Also some people just never "seroconvert" (get immunity from the vaccine) or need a 3rd or 4th dose to obtain immunity. This can be frustrating because they require multiple blood tests to ensure that they are immune. Rubella is a disease that isn't terribly serious except for the fact that when pregnant women get it, their babies usually cannot survive the infection, or the babies brains are severely injured for the rest of their lives. So this vaccine is important for all of us to get so that women won't have a large chance of getting exposed during pregnancy. All of these diseases are pretty harsh, and can be deadly in young, elderly, weak, ill, or medicated people (on steroids or other drugs that weaken the immune system).
In the 'developed' world, the MMR vaccine is readily available at your doctor's office. Most children would have already received it early in life.

Your cannot develop autism from any of the ingredients of the MMR vaccine. Previously, some studies (most famously by Andrew Wakefield in 1998) had linked the MMR vaccine to …the development of autism in children, but recently these studies have been completely discredited. As well, Wakefield, who published a paper linking the MMR vaccine to autism in The Lancet, a British medical journal, has had his work on the subject discredited and is now barred from practice in the UK. There is NO link between autism and the MMR vaccine.
It's not just MMR. Many parents are very cautious about giving something to a otherwise healthy child. Unfortunately, that's the nature of vaccines. They are to prevent future… illnesses. Because of this fact, an effective vaccine would basically eliminate the occurrence of the disease it's made for. As the result, the parents rarely ever witness or experience the actual disease. They will more likely see the side effects of the vaccines. Unfortunately, all medications have side effects, including placebos used during testing. It's these side effects that cause vaccines to be controversial. Some claim that there is direct cause of certain conditions because of the vaccines while the medical communities have repeatedly showed that's not the case. However, many parents are not convinced despite the evidences.
I typed in this exact question, and this came up. I'm very upset that this isn't answered. sort it out. traa.
