Measles Update as at 15th March 2019
Currently there are no known cases in the Wellington region.
The supplier has just run out of vaccines and priority will be given to sending new supplies to Canterbury (where there are known cases) when vaccines arrive in the country.
When we get vaccines priority will be given to those who have never had an MMR dose, starting with children aged 15 months to 12 years old. The second priority will be those aged 13 to 28 years old who have had no documented single dose.
- Regional Public Health advise:
If you are over 50 years old you are considered to be immune as measles was prevalent prior to 1969
- If you are aged 28 to 49 years old, and have had one dose of MMR, you are considered to be 95% protected.
We understand that you may be concerned and want to check your immunisation status. We are experiencing a high number of these calls, in addition to our daily call flow, and will undertake to return your call re MMR status within 3 business days.
