Question: 

I am an adult male (born 1969 in the US). Do I need a measles booster? US guidelines say 'yes' for my birth year, but Canada guidelines say 'no'.

Answer: 

People born before 1970 (1957 for health care workers) are generally assumed to have acquired immunity to measles from natural infection. However, people born before 1970 without a history of measles disease or vaccination, should talk to their health care provider about getting the measles, mumps, rubella (MMR) vaccine.
