“We ask everyone to check to make sure they and their family members are up to date with the measles / mumps / rubella (MMR) vaccine and all other immunizations suitable for their age. Not only does vaccination protect you, it protects others around you who are too young to get the vaccine or can't get it for medical reasons, "said Dr. Christina Tan, the state epidemiologist.
" If you are planning an international tour, the World Health Organization recommends that adults or adolescents who are unsure about their immune status receive the measles dose vaccine before traveling.
