In a nutshell: Young children who receive the live measles, mumps, and rubella vaccine (MMR vaccine) on schedule after vaccination against other common infections have a lower rate of hospital admission for any type of infection than children who are not vaccinated within the recommended timing or sequence, a Danish nationwide study has shown. Researchers followed up 495 987 children born from 1997 to 2006 aged 11 months to two years, using data from Danish national registers on vaccinations and hospital admissions.
