Measles Shots Aren't Just For Kids: Many Adults Could Use A Booster Too

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, people who were vaccinated prior to 1968 with an early version of the vaccine, which was made from an inactivated (killed) virus, "should be revaccinated" with at least one dose of live attenuated measles vaccine.

Me? I was born in 1971 so, I was given an improved vaccine but if offered during a trip to the VA? I'd likely take it.

Whatcha think? Were you aware of these booster shots? Will you be getting one if possible?

I would take it === why not?

I actually did have an additional booster shot for measles while an adult (many years ago). I was going to grad school part time and there was a measles outbreak at the college I was attending. They required you to show proof of vaccination and if you had not been vaccinated within a certain time period, they required a booster so that had to have been about 1989 or so - I think I am good.

I vaguely recall a booster shot some time in the distant past. No idea what it was for. Born in the 1950s, I might be at risk for not being vaccinationed so a shot or 2 would make me happy (or at least feel safer).
