Dear Mr XXXXXX

Measles , Mumps and Rubella are rare infection to get at age of 21 years. Even if person is not immunised or has no protective antibodies, it's not indicated at age of 21 years.
They are more helpful in females , as it's offers protection against Rubella : preventing transmission into the fetus and sequelae of Rubella infection in baby.

Do get back to me if you need any further assistance, will be glad to assist you.


Take care
