Question: 

Hello, I went to a BC secondary school from 1999 - 2004. Do you know if students from that cohort are up to date with measles vaccines? Thanks,

Answer: 

Tips for locating immunization records are here. In 1996, there was a measles, rubella (MR) vaccine provided to all children 19 months of age and older in a BC wide campaign. The second dose was for measles protection.

Those born in 1970 or later with documentation of two doses of a measles-containing vaccine are considered immune and no booster doses are recommended.
