Measles Vaccine Update
New measles vaccine stock arrived in New Zealand on Monday 16 September and will be distributed to District Health Boards over coming weeks to ensure the additional vaccines are going where they’re needed most.
The Ministry of Health and PHARMAC has also secured an additional 100,000 doses of the vaccine for New Zealand.
The main priority is to ensure all children receive their vaccinations on time at 15 months and 4 years.
If you think you need an MMR vaccination please contact your GP and register your interest and you will be contacted as soon as a vaccine is available.
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.
