Latest News and Information
Measles Update as at 8th October 2019
Due to limited supply, we have been told to prioritise “on time” childhood vaccinations.
We are currently only vaccinating:
- Children at 15 months and 4 years of age – at this stage we are not immunising earlier except in circumstances of increased risk (please discuss with our nurses)
Advice for young adults/adults who have no record of measles vaccination please contact our nurses who will assess your risk and we will contact you to make an appointment when the vaccine is available.
Parents of children aged 0-14yrs can email RES-NIR@huttvalleydhb.org.nz and ask for a copy of your child’s National Immunisation Register (NIR) record for measles. You will need to provide your child’s full name, date of birth, NHI number (if known) and the mother’s full name. Please note that the NIR was only formed in 2005 so records are not available for children over 14 years.
