    This test determines if a person's childhood vaccines are still protecting against measles. Rubeola IgG Antibody >30 means a person should be protected from measles.

    The Centers for Disease Control says anyone born before 1957 -- or who have had two doses of MMR and is in a high-risk environment should be protected. Anyone with one dose of the vaccine in a low-risk environment should be protected as well.

    The test does not require a doctor's approval and results are given in 1-3 days.

    The CDC recommends getting an MMR vaccine for anyone who is worried they are not protected against measles.
