Measles Update 1 May 2019

The Papanui Medical Centre is steadily working through our patients who require an MMR vaccination.

Current priorities:

1: Children aged 12 months to 13 years who have never been vaccinated

2: Children and adults aged 14 years to 28 years who have never been vaccinated

3: Ring-fencing children who cannot be vaccinated, such as the very young or for whom vaccination is contra-indicated

4: Continue with the routine immunisation programme (15 months and 4 years)

5: Occupational groups who have frequent contact with children such as EEC, primary and secondary school teachers; residential care managers, healthcare workers etc., who have never been vaccinated.
