Smallpox is the most effective and most serious of children's diseases. Before the vaccine was put into use in 1969, large chickenpox epidemics arose around every three years. Those born in Norway before 1960 are so likely to have measles that the MMR vaccine is usually not necessary.
As the situation is now, one must take into account that measles may occur in our region. Smallpox is extremely infectious and can cause serious illness with sensory damage in some patients.
The most important measure to prevent the disease is vaccination, which provides lifelong protection. Vaccination is important for your health, but also for preventing the spread of infection in other people who for various reasons can not take the vaccine.
The vaccine is free!
If you know with certainty that you have measles, you do not need a vaccine.
