Measles outbreak –  February / March 2019

There have been several cases of measles in Canterbury recently and significant outbreaks overseas including in the Philippines and some European countries

For countries that are affected, please check the Centres for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC, USA) website for travel updates – https://www.cdc.gov/measles/travelers.html

We recommend patients are prompt with childhood vaccinations, which are free.

Those born prior to this time, are considered to be immune.

If you suspect you or your child have measles, please phone us for advice.  Do not present at the medical centre.

Priority 2: Children and adults aged 14 years to 28 years who have never had an MMR vaccine

Priority 3: Family members of pregnant women and young babies who have never had an MMR vaccine

Priority 4: 15mth immunisation can be brought forward to 12 months

Priority 5:  Occupational groups who have frequent contact with children such as Early Childhood, Primary and secondary school teachers, residential care managers and health workers who have never had an MMR
