Thank you for asking at Ehealth forum!

I read your question and i understand your concern. Measles mumps rubella vaccination is done at 9 months of age. I dont see the correlation between hepatitis B and MMR vaccine.

I hope it helps. Stay in touch with your healthcare provider for further guidance as our answers are just for education and counselling purposes and cannot be an alternative to actual visit to a doctor.
Take care
