You are considered immune if you have had the recommended doses of the measles, mumps, and rubella (MMR) vaccine, had a past diagnosis of the mumps by a doctor, or have lab evidence of immunity. If none of these apply, check with your doctor or local immunization clinic to see if the MMR vaccine is recommended before you travel.
