You should have had a measles vaccine (probably as an MMR, which stands for measles, mumps, and rubella) when you were between 12 months and 15 months old, and then another one at age 4-6. If you had both of those, you are fully immunized. It sounds like you did. Some healthcare facilities would also required a blood test to prove that you are still immune, but you probably do not need to do that.
