Measles vaccine

Hi,
I read an article which stated that everyone between the ages of 4 months to 40 years should be vaccinated again for measles. Is this true?

Hallo Worried
If you did not have measles or a measles vaccination, it is important that you get vaccinated. If you had one, but you work with kids or in crowded areas or a hospital it may be wise to have a booster. I gave my kids a measles booster but did not take one myself..
