    Ok that makes it sound unlikely that I'll get it.

    I wonder if the person who has it was immunised. If not I'd be pretty annoyed!

    It's not in my paper work and I definitely would have remembered if they gave it to me in the days after birth. If I was given it the day I gave birth I wouldn't have remembered. Definitely didn't have it at my 6 week check up.

    Default Exposed to measles

    I'd be annoyed too!

    At 26 your chances of still having vaccine immunity is good.
    You can usually get a vaccine as a prophylaxis but not if you are pregnant.
    At what stage did you see the affected people? (By that I mean how long between you seeing them and their symptoms/diagnosis)?

    They were diagnosed today and I saw them last Thursday and every work day before that (not Friday as I was off work for my 12w scan).

    I'm not sure about that. The IgG level for rubella needs to be above 10 IU/L
    but usually (not always but generally) the measles and mumps test is just a "detected" or "not detected" result.

    I check immunisation records for staff pre employment and I really see a figure for measles and mumps.

    Where either of them kind of snotty? Like a mild cold type illness?

    Default Exposed to measles

    It's spread via respiratory secretions.
    They could have been infectious when you saw them however if they weren't coughing and sneezing it would lower their risk of transmission.
    The prodromal illness before the rash is usually 2 to four days. This and 4 days after the rash appears is the infectious period.
    Good news is unlike rubella a maternal infection does not cause congenital malformations.
    But given you are only 26, I'd like your odds that you still have immunity from your vaccines.
    TBH, I rarely see people with low/no measles immunity.

    It does matter that you were in contact with other "exposed" people.
    You can't "carry" it unless you are infected. Most people have vaccine immunity.

    Can I still get it if I have some immunity?
    Nope, if you are immune you are immune!
