It scares me

Evidently there is a mumps outbreak in the midwest ~ Mumps Story

Three years ago I probably wouldn't have given it a second thought. I've had my MMR vaccinations, so I'm good to go, right? Now that I'm a mom just the thought of something like mumps going around strikes fear in my heart. Makes me immediately rush to look through Alyssa's records from her doctor's visits to see where she stands on her MMR shots. And makes me really glad that she has her 18 month well check next Wednesday so that I can get the latest scoop from Dr. K.

Great... and my MMR shot "expired" so I don't have the immunization right now. One more thing to worry about!

I saw that in the paper this week and wondered about you. Do we need bosters for that shot, I wonder?

I got my final shot before going to college and I thought I was good to go, but maybe I'm wrong.
