I would have had the vaccine in school (I'm 26 now). Hopefully that wasn't too long ago. I'm a bit stressed out...
How stressful. How long until your blood result come through?
I'm not sure how long it will take. He gave me a checkup. No symptoms yet.
When were you exposed?
Results usually take a few days. Hopefully the GP put urgent... Measles is treated quite seriously and the local Public Health Unit will be scrabbling to do contact tracing etc (measles is a reportable disease). It might be worth making enquiries with them. You can be treated with Immunoglobulin if you are found to not be immune. Measles in pregnancy is not as "bad" as rubella, but still can cause issues. Do you know for sure the person had Measles? And has if been reported? Let us know how you go OP.
Oh and generally there is a 10-20 day incubation period after exposure
It was reported today. I was exposed last week. Last time I saw her was Thursday. However I'm still in contact with everyone else that was exposed as well.
Also exposed prior to last week.
