Question: 

I'm 83 yrs old and live in BC. Should I get a measles shot. I grew up outside of Canada. Assume I was vaccinated as a child but not 100 % sure.

Answer: 

Individuals born before 1970 are generally assumed to have acquired immunity to measles from natural infection, and therefore  Measles, Mumps, Rubella (MMR) Vaccine is not recommended for these individuals.
