Is There a Way to See If You are Immune to the Measles?

If you are worried that you are not immune from measles, even if you’re vaccinated, you can get a simple blood test to see if you have antibodies to the illness. 

If you are an adult, and even if you were vaccinated as a child, you could still be under-vaccinated. Further, you may not be vaccinated and/or your child may be unvaccinated for various reasons, yet you or your child may have been exposed to measles and have a natural immunity.

Therefore, if you would like to find out if you’ve been exposed to the measles virus and have developed a natural immunity, or if you are interested in seeing if old vaccines you’ve received are still effective, ask your doctor for a prescription for a measles or MMR titer blood test to determine your immunity level.
