Can you get it more than once?

Hello smile

I just wondered if you do get it, if it's possible to get it again, or is it like measles and once you've had it that's it?

Probably a daft question, but i thought i'd ask if anyone knows.

Just found the answer. I realised if i get off my bum and mumsnet i can actually look things up myself grin

You can get it again if the strain develops, but you will have a degree of protection from the antibodies you developed from the first bout.
