Brief Answer: No, it does not. Detailed Answer: Hi, Thanks for consulting HealthcareMagic! No, it does not. Measles, mumps, and rubella vaccine (MMR) viruses administered to a 12 month old baby does not pose a risk to you or any household member. It usually cannot make you sick even if you have Lupus.
