    It depends. I cannot take traditional vaccines for example because I have to take a medication that suppresses my immune system (which sucks, but the larger issue I take the meds for sucks more and these meds make me symptom free), but not so much I have to live in a bubble, I just get sick about 2x as often as I used to and it lasts an extra day. There are different degrees of being compromised.

    My younger daughter has a compromised immune system too, but hers didn't start until puberty so she had all her childhood vaccinations.

    I just wanted to extend to you a little moral support , and let you know I understand a little bit about what you go through and I wish you well.

    Thanks, but its no big deal. Overall, I am very healthy and I just need to be careful here and there (like maybe in one or two situations a month) but I would be wrong in saying that my life is negatively affected.

    so many others have it much, much worse and I am blessed in my opinion.

    I was 17 then, and nobody called for me to be vaccinated for it. By the time I was in high school, no one ever worried about measles. We had all had it. Nobody ever was out sick with it because it was understood that we now had the immunity to it.

    The vaccine courts disagree with you.

    Personal experience is anecdotal not fact.
    Fact is any side effects from vaccines are beyond rare when compared to the number of people who long term negative effects/death from measles.
