MEASLES, MUMPS AND RUBELLA (MMR) TITER
WHAT IS AN MMR TITER?
MMR stands for Measles, Mumps and Rubella.
The MMR Titer is a blood test that checks if you are immune to Measles, Mumps and Rubella. It measures your antibody levels to get a sense for whether your immune system has the capability to respond to an infection with one of these diseases.
HOW LONG WILL IT TAKE TO GET MY LAB TEST RESULTS?
Test results generally take between 24 to 72 business hours after your specimen is collected.
WHY DO I NEED A MMR TITER?
People who work in certain settings, such as hospitals or medical clinics, are at an increased risk for being exposed to certain diseases. As a result, many institutions want proof of a certain antibody level or vaccination for diseases such as Hepatitis B, Mumps, Measles, Rubella and Varicella prior to stepping into those settings.
