If we align the two, even when 100% of the population is vaccinated, the measles can still be spread by the 5% who did not respond to full vaccination.
The short answer is no. The longer answer is that you should vaccinate anyway, unless you happen to be over 65, in which case you get double vaccine. And if you're a health care worker, you must vaccinate or lose your job.

In the news, crazy vaccine resisting Muslims are killing their children with Polio. Oops, nobody died, but they make it sound like they are from all this resisting. Oh, except back in 2007 the Nigerian epidemic was " a rare outbreak of a vaccine-derived form of polio in northern Nigeria

If you were exposed and already had H1N1 like we were, chances are you already have antibodies. At this point even 25% of house cats have been exposed.
