But if you only had one measles vaccine as a child and are in a high-risk transmission setting - that means college students, healthcare personnel, worldwide travelers and people who live in a neighborhood or community that is experiencing a measles outbreak - you should get a second vaccine, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
This year there have been such discussions about eight individuals in five states, as first reported by the Washington Post Thursday. That was the highest number since 1992, when the CDC recorded 2,126 cases.
