A MMR-velous Birthday Party!

Hello tracker gang! Did you hear- my birthday is coming up! I might only be turning two, but in dog years I'm practically a teenager.

I have a big problem, though. I have my friend's birthday party on the same day as my own birthday party! I don’t know what to do. I can’t be in two places at once.

I might not be very good at multitasking, but the MMR vaccine sure is. The MMR vaccine can

protect people from measles, mumps, and rubella all at the same time! It’s usually given in two doses, one when you are a small baby and another time when you are 15 months to 6 years old. But the vaccine protects you for your whole life! Now that is some amazing work. I am so glad I got my MMR vaccine, those infections don’t sound nearly as fun as going to a birthday party. To learn more about MMR visit the CDC website at

Here is a pic from my birthday party last year :)
