There is limited Measles vaccine stock currently in NZ and the Ministry of Health has been prioritising how it is distributed. While the current vaccine supply is limited, the priority groups as determined by the Ministry of Health are children aged 15 months and 4 years old getting their MMR vaccine as part of the Immunisation Schedule.
MHC have enough supply to immunise these children. We will continue to keep you up to date on any future changes.
The Immunisation Advisory Centre provides up to date information about measles immunity and the MMR vaccine on their website:
