Regional Public Health advise:
- If you are over 50 years old you are considered to be immune as measles was prevalent prior to 1969
- If you are aged 28 to 49 years old, and have had one dose of MMR, you are considered to be 95% protected.
We understand that you may be concerned and want to check your immunisation status. We are experiencing a high number of these calls, in addition to our daily call flow, and will undertake to return your call re MMR status within 3 business days.
