Measles

There have been a number of cases of measles confirmed in NZ this year including in Canterbury. There are significant outbreaks overseas.

Those born before 1969 are considered immune to measles. Everyone born in 1969 or later needs to have proof of two doses of MMR after the age of 12 months to be considered immune.

If you are enrolled at Kingdom Clinic and are unsure, please phone us on 039820168 and we can check the records we hold and/or book you a free appointment for your MMR vaccine.

Update – August 2019:

The outbreak is over, but vaccines are still in short supply globally. We have returned to the normal schedule for MMR vaccines, but will be able to offer more vaccines in about three to four months hopefully. The good news is that one vaccine provides about 95% cover.
