One study has suggested that measles can lead to "immune memory loss", meaning immunities gained prior to measles infection can be lost.

I had measles at age six. According to the (current) CDC schedule for immunizations, much of my presumed immune response was developed from vaccinations prior to age 6 and thus seems to me to possibly be at risk. Also, I had chickenpox and other infections prior to having the measles.

Is it recommended to get re-immunized for things I was exposed to (via vaccine or infection) prior to having the measles?
