For those that vaccinate, what vaccines are known to give lifetime immunity and which do not? And how do we know which ones do and don't?

For instance, I am still immune to rubella, I was vaccinated per 1980/1990's guidelines and recieved dtp, mmr, polio and the boosters. My last mmr was about 27 years ago, so the R lasts forever it seems but not dtp? Or is just the P that doesn't last?

Just wondering...

I agree with @kindacrunchy. I got the MMR and DTP as a kid in the very early 80s and nothing since. They've checked with a recent pregnancy and I'm still immune to R, but I caught P, so that clearly wore off.

R vax seems to have some staying power.

Too bad.

If you want to renew your immunity to measles and mumps, you will still have to get the MMR, with the unnecessary rubella component, or so goes the protocol.

The same with the DaPT. If you need only one, too bad.
