We’ve received many calls about the recent measles outbreak. Here are our recommendations based on the Center for Disease Control guidelines:
You do not need the measles vaccine or to be tested for immunity if you meet any of the following criteria for immunity:
- -If you were born before 1957. This is because almost everybody got measles before then.
- -If you have written documentation of adequate vaccination.
You are adequately vaccinated if:
- -You’ve had at least one dose of the measles vaccine during your lifetime and aren’t part of a high risk group such as a college student, health care worker, or international traveler.
- -You’ve had two doses of the measles vaccine if you are a college student, health care worker, or international traveler.
- -If you have lab test showing you were previously infected with measles or received the vaccine.
Please note that if you were vaccinated against measles before 1968 with either inactivated (killed) measles vaccine or a measles vaccine of an unknown type, you should be revaccinated with a measles vaccine. This is because between 1963-1967, some people received the killed measles vaccine, which was not effective. If you have documentation of receiving LIVE measles vaccine in the 1960s you do not need to be vaccinated. If you are unsure which kind of measles vaccine you received before 1968, call our office to have your immunity tested.
If you have questions or concerns, please contact our office (512) 454-5171 or you can speak to your physician at your next visit. You can also get more information by clicking on the CDC link below.

Committed to Wellness Care
Capital Medical Clinic is committed to your wellness care — health care that may lower your risk of illness or injury. We want you to know that Medicare pays 100% for a wellness visit once a year to identify health risks and help you to reduce them.
At a wellness visit, you can expect a review of your health that includes the following:
Screenings to detect depression, risk for falling or other problems
Heart and diabetic screening, if indicated
Recommendations for other wellness services and healthy lifestyle changes
At Capital Medical Clinic, the annual wellness visits are conducted by our Physician Extender, David Hoch, PA. He will work with you, in coordination with your physician, to develop or update a prevention plan. In addition, they will develop and ongoing health plan to keep you healthy, safe and independent for a long time.
Medicare provides this benefit at no cost to the patient. However, if additional tests or other services are performed at the visit, you may be required to pay coinsurance and the Part B deductible may apply. For example, a wellness visit does not address new or existing health problems, and it does not pay for a traditional, head-to-toe physical. That would be a separate service and requires a longer appointment. This does not replace the annual physical examination that is required with your physician.
We hope to help you get the most from your Medicare wellness benefits. For more information about these visits, please go to the medicare.gov website or call 512-454-5171 to schedule an appointment.
