    I work with children and I had the MMR vaccine 3 years ago and every two years I need a physical checking for my work. I had blood test few days ago and it results said that I am not immune to the MMR vaccine but I don't know if I should have it again even if I know that I had it 3 years ago. Should I have it? and it is a some risks? thank you!

    It doesn't matter if you had it only 3 years ago if you're not immune. Not being immune means it's time to get vaccinated. No, there are no risks to having it so soon but there are some very real risks to you (1 adult in 3 who catches measles ends off in hospital, for instance) if you don't get it and you're working with children.
