We are currently experiencing unprecedented demand for the measles vaccine and information.
We are currently following the Ministry of Health guidelines for vaccination priority.
For further information please go to https://www.cdhb.health.nz or

We have been advised that children under 4 years of age only require 1 mmr vaccine for protection so if your child has had 1 mmr vaccine the next one is due at 4 years of age.
We are routinely vaccinating children when due for their 15 month immunisations. This can be done from 12 months of age.
We are currently recalling adult patients where we find they require an mmr vaccine.
