Measles wants to make a comeback! And this is not a good thing. Measles kills and disables. In New York State right now there are believed to be 70 cases and other states are seeing cases too. Most of these cases are in people who have not been or maintained immunity through vaccination. Some are related to travel to places (e.g. Israel for one of the earliest NY cases) where there are lots of measles cases. Protect yourself and your loved ones. If you are not sure about your immune status you can have a titer done.

good idea, a few years back I had my whopping cough/and tetnuss updated. Haven't thought about measles. My daughter in nursing school had to get hers updated.

I had to get reboosted for measles when I started grad school. The protection does wane and often is very low in early 20s which is why there are immunization laws for attending college in New York (and I suppose other states as well).
