Measles outbreak: Wellington schools, early childhood centres warned of risk

Measles Misinformation Draws The Attention Of Canada’s Chief Public Health Officer

He said this shows the primary care community is on high alert for measles cases.

However, the report warned that outbreaks stemming from people bringing the disease into the country continue to take place, highlighting the need to "remain vigilant until measles is eradicated worldwide".

The Auckland Regional Public Health Service is asking people who may have been exposed, to look out for symptoms.

Measles symptoms include fever, sore eyes and a cough followed by a red, blotchy rash on the head and neck that spreads to the rest of the body.

Fourteen thousand does of the measles, mumps and rubella (MMR) vaccine are now being distributed to Christchurch general practices as the number of confirmed cases of measles has risen to 28 almost three weeks after the outbreak began.

"I am very concerned to see vaccine-preventable diseases, particularly those as serious and highly contagious as measles, making a comeback in Canada and around the globe. And the second dose of the vaccine is for that small percentage who do not gain immunity from that first vaccine", he said.

Ministry of Health director of public health Dr Caroline McElnay encouraged Wellingtonians who were not yet had their Measles, Mumps, Rubella (MMR) vaccine to visit their doctor.

Pharmac was working with suppliers, both nationally and internationally, to get sufficient volumes of the MMR vaccine for everyone who needed it, Williams said.

"GP teams are also focused on providing the vaccine to young adults aged 14 years to 28 years who have never been immunised".

"How we talk to parents who have questions about vaccines can have a direct effect on improving their confidence and supporting them in getting their children vaccinated", Dr. Theresa Tam says in a recent statement. The vaccination is free. This also applies if you or a family member aren't fully immunised and may have been in contact with someone with measles.
