Answer

See the list below:

  • Immunization programs for healthcare personnel, including students, who may be in contact with patients with measles.

  • Birth before 1957 is not a guarantee of measles immunity; facilities should consider vaccination of unimmunized healthcare personnel who lack laboratory evidence of immunity who were born before 1957.
