Measles Immunization Status for Staff
Please consider discussing with ALL staff the importance of knowing their immunization status relating to measles.
- For staff born before 1957 : No further immunization needed.
- For staff born after 1957: Confirm completion of two doses of MMR vaccine a minimum of 28 days apart OR serological proof of immunity (a blood test that demonstrates that an individual has immunity for the disease).
If we do get a confirmed case of measles, we must protect our staff as well as our students. Should an outbreak occur, staff without documented immunity may be excluded from work by the Health Department for a minimum of 21 days.
