Drug interactions and other interactions –

  • Corticosteroids and Immunosuppressive Drugs

MMR vaccine should not be administered to individuals receiving immunosuppressive therapy, including high dose corticosteroids. Vaccination with MMR vaccine can result in disseminated disease due to measles vaccine in individuals on immunosuppressive drugs.

  • Immune Globulins and Transfusions

Administration of immune globulins and other blood products concurrently with MMR vaccine may interfere with the expected immune response. The ACIP has specific recommendations for intervals between administration of antibody containing products and live virus vaccines.

  • Tuberculin Skin Testing

It has been reported that live attenuated measles, mumps and rubella virus vaccines given individually may result in a temporary depression of tuberculin skin sensitivity. Therefore, if a tuberculin skin test with tuberculin purified protein derivative is to be done, it should be administered before, simultaneously with, or at least 4 to 6 weeks after vaccination with MMR vaccine.

  • Use with Other Live Viral Vaccines

MMR vaccine can be administered concurrently with other live viral vaccines. If not given concurrently, MMR vaccine should be given one month before or one month after administration of other live viral vaccines to avoid potential for immune interference.
