    It seems there are a lot of people asking the same questions as you. This explains it.



    They just show that there are 19 Genotypes of Measles, but only one serotype - and that antibodies for one serotype will protect against all genotypes.

And lastly, there is some commotion about a measles outbreak in the US which started in Disney Land, does anyone know what strain of measles is it or what strains (if more than one). I asked my GP and she could not give me these answers. After opting out the MMR vaccine but am now willing to reconsider but I need to have the answers so I can make an informative choice.
