    Default Exposed to measles

    Your 16th old may be able to have her 18mth vax early, but discuss with your GP
    Because our council in London has had recent measles cases parents are advised to ensure their child has the second dose at 18 months.

    Eta: sorry, just realized you said have 18 month jab early, didn't realize OZ did another mmr at 18 months.☺️

    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...

    Very stressful. Did the dr seem worried? What will they do if your immunity is low?

    I'm not sure how long it will take. He gave me a checkup. No symptoms yet.

    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.
