Information received today from Auckland, Counties and Waitemata DHB’s advises there are current vaccine distribution issues.

They have directed Primary care practices that the aim is to protect those children most at risk from measles, and have advised us to focus on childhood immunisations and on Pacific people aged between 15 and 29 years.

We will continue to update and appreciate your understanding. This measles outbreak began back in February and we have tried to accommodate as many requests for MMR vaccines as possible up until now, as such this has left us with very limited stocks and therefore we will be cancelling appointments of those not considered high risk.
