MMR vaccine

I had the MMR vaccine on the 19th of Aug (recommended by my gynae before falling pregnant, as I was not immunized) and recently found some itchy lumps all over my body. Is it possible that I have measles or german measles because of the MMR shot?

Hallo Cruz C
No the vaccination will not cause measles or german measles. The rash from both these diseases is a fine red rash, not lumps. These may be either insect bites or an allergy. Show your GP when you get it again?
