21 Oct 2019 - More measles vaccines have arrived in NZ.

The Minitry of Health's priority group criteria have widened and we are able to offer vaccinations to more people born on or after 1/1/1969 who have never had any doses and fulfil certain age-dependant criteria.

We cannot offer the vaccine to those born prior to 1969.

Please note for adults if you have had one dose already we are still not able to give you the second dose at this stage. 

We will actively recall babies 6 months to 11 months old for MMR0 (dose 0) - babies receiving dose 0 will still need 2 more scheduled childhood doses.

Please do not book MMR vaccinations online. Stock level remain low within the practice.

For all MMR vaccine queries please ring the practice, one of our staff will contact you after your doctor has had a look into your individual unique situation. 

If you or a family member suspect you have measles you should stay at home and call us or Healthline on 0800 611 116 to alert us of your symptoms. Do not come into the clinic without calling us.

2019 Measles Outbreak:

Measles is circulating in New Zealand, particularly in Auckland. 

If you or a family member suspect you have measles you should stay at home and call us or Healthline on 0800 611 116 to alert us of your symptoms. Do not come into the clinic without calling us. 

The MMR vaccine is 95% effective at stopping you from getting measles after just one dose at age 1 or older. With 2 doses it is up to 99% protective. 

Children under the age of 4 who have had 1 dose of MMR at age 1 or over should have their second MMR dose on time when they turn 4 years of age; there is no need to bring the second dose forward.

If you are born before 1969, the official advice is that you do not need to be immunised because you are considered immune since you most likely would have had the measles infection in your childhood.

Please check the Ministry of Health Measles Outbreak Information page for the most up to date information. This is an evolving situation and more updates are expected.
