My daughter has had one vacination for mesles - perhaps 2 but she is not sure. To be safe, can she safely get another measles shot before she travels? She is 26. Thank you
Two doses of measles-containing vaccine are recommended for people born in 1970 or later. This is especially important for travelers.
Getting an extra dose of vaccine when an immunization history is unknown is not harmful and ensures protection. We recommend that your daughter follows up with her health care provider for vaccine recommendations. For travel vaccine recommendations, she can contact her local travel clinic.
Information on locating immunization records is available here.
