Measles Vaccination

Measles is a very contagious disease, as we have had a recent case in Auckland, it is important to check your immunisation status with your family doctor.

The best protection against measles is to be vaccinated with two doses of the measles, mumps, rubella (MMR) vaccine. 

The Year 9 students are currently part of a Te Whata Ora catch up immunisation programme where they can receive their MMR vaccine for free at school, please return all completed forms to school.

If you or anyone in your whānau born after 1969 has not had an MMR vaccine, or aren't sure, ask your GP, parent or caregiver.
