Your Measles Vaccine May No Longer Be Working
If you were vaccinated against measles, the vaccine, depending on your age, may no longer be in your system. There's been a recent outbreak in the Pacific northwest, escalating the demand. A report from healthline.com says many adults born between the mid 1950's - early '70s may need to be revaccinated. It's particularly important for people traveling abroad.
“So, we now recommend to people that are traveling abroad that are born in this time period of ’57 to early ’70s that they should be re-vaccinated when traveling overseas to areas that may have more measles.” - Dr. Roy Buchinsky, University Hospitals
