Imagine the surprise of a young mother, who's giving birth to her second child, and the doctors suddenly rush her for a german measles vaccine.
This is exactly what happened to me, when I was almost 30 years old.
Literally, in the middle of labor, I was informed that a routine test showed that I no longer had the immunity I needed for my little one's safety, as well as mine!
That was the first time I'd ever heard of such a thing: Your childhood vaccinations can expire! They just recently figured this out.
Well, don't get yourself in a dangerous situation, like that.
At your regular checkup, ask your doctor to update the potentially outdated vaccines - and this is now, generally, covered by most insurance policies.
Or, call your physician, and ask the office to look into your file, and see if you might need a "touch up."
It could save you years of heartache and financial challenge - all because of a medical myth from our childhood.
