Statement Regarding Los Angeles County Measles Outbreak
At Facey Medical Group, your health is important to us. We are aware of the measles outbreak in our area and are following the recommendations from Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the Los Angeles County Department of Public Health, which are as follows:
- If you were born before 1957 you are considered immune to measles and do not need any further testing or vaccinations for measles.
- If you were born in or after 1957 and you have had two doses of a measles-containing vaccine (MMR is the most common) in your lifetime, you are considered immune and do not need any further testing or vaccinations for measles.
- If you were born in or after 1957 and are unsure of your measles immunity status, please feel free to contact your primary care physician’s office and a member of our team will assist you with checking our records of your medical history. We’ll advise you if testing or a vaccination is needed.
