I thought this article was interesting, on WebMD:

http://my.webmd.com/content/article/...tselectedguid={5FE84E90-BC77-4056-A91C-9531713CA348}

Quote:
When a woman is immune to measles due to having a vaccine, lower antibody levels develop than if she developed immunity to the disease after having had measles herself, according to Papania. Therefore, in women with a vaccine-induced measles immunity, lower antibody levels give less antibody to their children," he says. "So, the infants become susceptible [to measles] at an earlier age."
Anyway, I apologize in advance if this is old news, but I just ran across it, and thought it a little refreshing that a place such as WebMD admits that vaccines provide an inferior immunity than the natural disease.
