Measles is a highly contagious and often serious disease. Measles infection can have serious complications such as encephalitis, meningitis, and death. If you were born on or after January 1, 1957, VUMC Policy QRSP 10-10.08 requires that you receive the vaccine. The vaccine is administered free of charge to Medical Center faculty/staff.
NOTE: You do not need to be revaccinated if you can provide documentation of two live measles vaccinations after your 1st birthday at least one month apart, or laboratory evidence of immunity to measles (rubeola).
