Phoenix clinic offers tests for measles immunity

As Arizona health officials work to stop the spread of measles, some local clinics are offering a test so you can see if you're immune to the disease, because you were vaccinated or already had the measles.

Any Lab Test Now offers blood testing, especially for people who don't have immunization records.  The clinic says you don't need an appointment or doctor's order to get a test.

"Once somebody.. if they cough or they sneeze.. it can live up into a room for over two hours.  So somebody that comes in that does not have immunity to the measles.. they are susceptible to catching it by a 90 percent chance they will catch the measles," said Any Lab Test Now's owner, Patrick Staar.

Any Lab Test Now is open six days a week and has five locations in the Phoenix-Metro area.
