However, the CDC says the two-dose vaccine is 97 percent effective at preventing infection.

State law mandates students are required to get two doses of the measles, mumps and rubella-or MMR-vaccine. The vaccine remains effective for approximately 25 years, after which a test for vaccine renewal is necessary.

People born before January 1, 1969 are likely to be immune because measles used to be quite common and so this older age group did not need measles immunisation.
