getting mmr twice
My boyfriend has already gotten the MMR vaccine but he doesn't have proof to show the university he will be attending in the fall.  Would it be dangerous for him to get the vaccine again?  He only got the first one 3 and a half years ago when he moved here from England.

Getting the MMR vaccine again will not be a problem. It is generally reccomended that children get two doses of MMR, once at age one and a booster at age 6. Adults who have not had a second MMR should get one. It is a live-virus vaccine and after two doses, you should have lifetime immunity. Generally is is not harmful to get revaccinated with any vaccine, as long as there were no serious side effects when the particular vaccine was initially given. Tetanus shots should not be given without a 3-5 year interval.
