Measles Vaccine Update
Current measles vaccination priorities in New Zealand are:
- making sure all children get vaccinated on time at age 15 months and 4 years, to maintain New Zealand’s Childhood Immunisation Schedule
- vaccinating all children under 15 who have not had a single dose of MMR.
Please contact your GP if you have a child in one of the vaccination priority groups.
If you are aged 15 and over and think you need an MMR vaccination, please contact your GP and register your interest.
We ask you to please be patient with our doctors and nurses who are doing their best to ensure you receive your vaccination as soon as possible.
IT IS IMPORTANT IF YOU THINK YOU HAVE MEASLES SYMPTOMS THAT YOU CALL YOUR GP RATHER THAN ATTEND IN PERSON.
For more information about measles please see this page at the Toi Te Ora Public Health website.
