Whilst Canterbury has a number of measles cases, there have been NO confirmed cases of Measles in South Canterbury.
We are continuing to provide regular scheduled MMR vaccinations according to the
national immunisation schedule.
The NZ schedule is for MMR vaccine at 15 months and 4 years old, and for adults born after 1969 who do not have 2 documented MMR vaccines.
We are however, experiencing intermittent disruptions to vaccine supply, as the priority for vaccine delivery is the Canterbury region.
