Exposed to measles

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...

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.

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.
