MEASLES UPDATE: Winters Family Practice, following the recommendations of the CDC is recommending the following:
- If you were born in the U.S. BEFORE 1957, you are considered immune and therefore do NOT need to be vaccinated. Also, if you were born in the U.S. in 1971 or LATER, you would have had the vaccine in order to attend school and therefore, do NOT need another vaccine.
-Babies 6-12 months may get vaccinated if the parents so desire. They will still need the 2 addtional MMR vaccines at 12 mths and age 4-5 required for school.
-Adults born between 1957 and 1971 do NOT need the vaccine if they either had the measles disease or have written proof of vaccination.
-If you were born between 1957 and 1971 and do not have proof of vaccination or had the disease, you may have a blood test done to determine your immunity to measles. If it is found that you are not immune, you may choose to get the MMR vaccine.
-To schedule a blood test, or vaccination, please call our office at 847-742-3120. *Please be aware that insurance usually will not cover this blood test or vaccination for adults.
