Measles in Auckland

March 14, 2019

Aucklanders should be aware there are measles cases in the region and know what the symptoms are.

 

Outside of Canterbury, the focus remains on 'on time' infant and childhood MMR vaccinations. Providers should not be recalling children for early MMRs. The IMAC and Ministry of Health websites have been updated to reflect this.

 The Auckland Regional Public Health Service (ARPHS) has updated their website with information including a Q&A section, information regarding symptoms and what you should do if you have these:

The Immunisation Advisory Centre (IMAC) has also created a detailed information page on their website containing advice for health professionals, advice on vaccination and an extensive list of links to other related resources:
