*** Measles update - 29 October 2019 ***

Please follow this link to Auckland Regional Public Health for the latest update on eligibility for MMR vaccination.https://www.arphs.health.nz/news/temporary-management-of-mmr-vaccine-in-metropolitan-auckland-2/?fbclid=IwAR3s8Jcb2S0T6NuTJAygLqXTou0-LjZJivGJhrGIEstI4TGQqHDf1wa2mEc

MMR Vaccination now available to all babies age 6 months and over if living in Auckland or travelling to Auckland. Remember if MMR given before 12 months of age, your baby will still require a further 2 MMR vaccinations at age 12 months and 4 years. 

Priorities for MMR vaccine expanded

Babies and children are most seriously affected by measles and our first priority is to protect them. In this outbreak Pacific and Māori people are more seriously affected by measles than other groups and are also a priority for vaccination.

As of 21 October 2019, priorities for MMR vaccine in the Auckland region are:

  • To vaccinate babies aged 6-11 months old, particularly Pacific and Māori.
  • To provide scheduled childhood immunisations at 12 months and 4 years.
  • To vaccinate people aged under 30 who have not had any MMR vaccinations, with particular focus on:
    • Pacific and Māori people
    • Students including school and tertiary students
    • Mothers and family members of newborn babies (0-6 months).
    • Teachers and early childhood educators.
  • To vaccinate some people aged 30-49 years, using clinical judgement to prioritise those:
    • Who work in higher risk environments such as institutions (e.g. prisons)
    • Who are in one of the priority groups in point 3 (e.g. teachers or new mothers aged 30-49 years)

MMR vaccination now available for 6-11-month-old babies in Auckland

From Monday 21 October, an additional dose of the MMR vaccine will be offered to babies aged 6 – 11 months in Auckland. This will be available for a three month period and then be reviewed.

Babies in this age group are most likely to be hospitalised in the current outbreak and are a priority for protection. Vaccination at 6 – 11 months is safe and gives babies good protection against measles, however, the two usual vaccinations (currently at 12 months and 4 years in Auckland) are still needed for full immunity.
