New born measles concern

Posted , 3 users are following.

Hello,

Planning a trip to Oregon, we have a four month old, she's up to date on vaccines but MMR doesn't start until 12 months. We're concerned about the measles outbreak in the Vancouver/Portland area. We're not going to that specific area, we'll be three hours south of there, but my brother and sister in-law live in Vancouver, WA and will be coming down to see us. They both received MMR as kids and do not think they've been to any of the exposure locations. Our pediatrician didn't think there was too much concern, I don't really think so either, but she's my first kid so feeling a little overprotective. Anyone have an opinion?

Thanks,
