One dose of measles or MMR vaccine will protect 95% of vaccinated people from measles.
If you think you have measles or have been in contact with measles - Please DO NOT COME INTO THE CLINIC.
This is very important, call us on 416 8541 and speak with a nurse. We will arrange to come an meet you in your car in the carpark. This is to prevent the spread of measles as it is a highly contagious airborne disease.
We have face masks and sterilising hand gel outside the front door of our clinic.
Children 15 months and older who have not had a MMR vaccine. We are able to vaccinate these children from 12 months of age to provide protection, but we are not actively recalling children between 12-15 months early due to supply constraints. Please call 416 8541 to book a nurse appointment to vaccinate.
Children under 4 who have had their 15 month MMR vaccine, are not required to have the second MMR vaccine early. Normal recalls will be issued at 4 years.
Adults - born between 1969 - 1984 who are not sure whether they have had any doses of MMR are eligible for a funded MMR booster in clinic. Please call 416 8541 to book a nurse appointment to vaccinate. (the vaccine is free, a $23 nurse fee applies per vaccine).
Adults born before 1969 - are considered immune to measles as the disease was prevalent and circulating widely prior to the introduction of the measles vaccine in 1969. No action needed for these patients.
