  1. I appreciate the thought but I will be canceling my gym membership. My primary care physician died over 15 years ago and although I received all immunizations on schedule it is too much trouble to try to track down my records. Good idea but too much hassle for me….

  2. Is that legal for a employer to require proof of mmr? If a person doesn’t have it will they be fired? Sounds like a lawsuit waiting to happen.

    • An employer has a right to request vaccination records, especially if the employee will be working with children. (Therapists, teachers, bus drivers etc)

  3. Kol hakavod!! Thank you for protecting your members, especially the immune compromised, pregnant women and children most at risk, and standing up for health and wellness! I hope all other establishments follow your example!

  4. If you know longer have records or had the measles, and would like to ck if you are still immune, my dr office said there’s a simple blood test that can ck that.

  5. Please read info on measles. It can be deadly. The virus can live for a few hours after you leave the area. Its airborne. So you can go into a large store with a child who has measles and infect many people. Very unfair. The health department can t be bought…..
