Measles exposure?

On June 10th 2 patients unknowing that they had measles visited the urgent care clinic on the first floor of my doctor's building. On June 19th I visited that same building on the 2nd floor. I have a few questions I would like to ask about that.
1. Any chance of me being exposed to the virus 9 days later?
2. How possible is it that one of the staff has it, or are they usually already immunized?
3. I'm 39, my mom seems to think I've had all the shots. My medical records are tough to get because I live on the opposite coast. I know 2 measles shots weren't used til the late 80's when I was 13. What is the probability that my pediatrician gave me the necessary 2nd shot at age 13?
Any help would be greatly appreciated.

One more thing, I'm symptom free 15 days after the office visit if that's any help.
