Wow - boosters every 3 to 5 years - ( I thought it was 10) I wonder if he means all the vaccines or just measles? That would cost a fortune !

The only reason DH and I got re-vaccinated in the last few years was due to undergoing IVF and our fertility specialist tested our immunity levels for various things and gave us boosters for pretty much everything. I can see how many people wouldn't be aware about boosters, we certainly didn't!

There are ones that need every 5-10 years, like whooping cough and tetanus. But there are ones, that after two doses that is meant to be forever - and it is for *most* people. Like MMR. Though I think this article serves as a reminder, that we can't just assume that we are all most people and that sometimes it might be wise to get your titer levels checked for VPDs.

I always thought the rubella part of MMR at least needed to be redone every 10 years. I don't think it takes on me anyhow as I've always tested just below the cutoff despite boosters.
