Question: 

I am a 34-year old female, and I would like to receive an adult measles booster. I live on Vancouver Island. Is there a facility near me where I can receive this? Thank you

Answer: 

For all individuals born after January 1, 1970, two doses of measles-containing vaccine are recommended. Those with documentation of two doses of a measles-containing vaccine are considered immune and no booster doses are recommended. The Measles, Mumps, Rubella (MMR) Vaccine is available at your local health unit or it may be available from your doctor's office or local pharmacy. Use the health unit finder.
