Immunity against measles virus will decrease with time after vaccination, thus it may not be able to provide full protection even you have been vaccinated before.
Measles antibody screening is important as it can detect whether the antibody level is adequate to protect measles infection.

However, no measles antibody screening test has been offered to high risk communities by the government, such as hospitality industry till now.
