So, I'm in Indiana and we're are currently experiencing an "outbreak" of wild measles. 17 cases in the whole state. All outbreaks have happened 3hrs NORTH of us.
Anyway, I get a letter in the mail from school about ds. I have him on file as unvaxed (though he was actually vaccinated until age 2 in another state.)
The school is considering 1 or more measles infection(s) in the school to be an "outbreak" and will exclude all unvaxed or undervaxed kids for 21 days AFTER the last measles case. (who knows how long that could be??)
The ways of proving immunity are current and up to date vaccination, titers showing immunity, OR getting an MMR vaccine ASAP before readmission.
We currently have a religious exemption, as our state only offers religious and medical exemptions. So, I don't want to release his proof of vaccination. I checked his records and he only had 1 does at 18mos old. Would there be any chance that his titers would be high enough to prove immunity?
And, does it seem reasonable that they would exclude for that long? According to their letter, the incubation period is 10-14 days. So, if an outbreak does occur, it could be weeks and weeks before he's readmitted.
