Born in 1995 in BC. Health passport shows I received MMR vaccine at 12 and 18 months. Wondering if this is sufficient as the second dose now given at 4 to 6 years, not 18 months.
People with documentation of 2 doses of measles-containing vaccine (usually given as the MMR Vaccine) at 12 months of age and older and given at least 4 weeks apart are considered immune to (protected against) measles.
In 2012, the second dose of the MMR vaccine was moved from 18 months to 4-6 years of age (kindergarten entry). This schedule change was so that children could be offered the combination MMRV Vaccine at 4-6 years (one less poke overall).
