The Old Card

Hearing the warnings about the outbreak of measles, I thought I'd better call the doctor.  After all, I had a card I was given thirty years ago saying I was non-immune to rubella.  While the Pres told me not to worry, I thought about all the contact I have with people and decided to play it safe.  (In case you don't know, MMR stands for measles, mumps, rubella.)

I guess I should tell you that while neither the receptionist nor the doctor"ever heard of such a thing," it only took another blood test to prove that I was non-immune (uh-duh), which resulted in a scrip for the MMR vaccine.

just seeing, saying, and sharing...

with you and those at


JP, now you have me wondering whether or not I have one of those old cards? But I do know that I had the measles in childhood.
