Question: 

I am 73 years of age, having never had the measles or the vaccine, do I need to get the vaccine now?

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 measles vaccination, should talk to their health care provider about getting the measles, mumps, rubella (MMR) vaccine.
