It's not guaranteed to work at all but if it gives you problems, those will last for the remainder of your life.

MMR is normally given twice during childhood, and should protect you for the rest of your life.

The actual shot lasts about 10-30 seconds. Reading the package insert carefully should take much, much longer.

Although I had the vaccine, I still got the mumps. And I've met 4 other people over the last 15 years who also got the mumps, even after having the vaccine.

It's not a definite thing, for protection. It's more like a crapshoot. Maybe it will work, but maybe it won't. I'm not a big fan of any vaccine, seeing as how I'm highly allergic to the tetanus booster. I haven't had one since 1990 because of that.
