MMR – Measles Mumps and Rubella
Many teenagers and young adults missed out on measles, mumps and rubella immunisation as children. They may not be fully protected from these diseases. Being immunised now is important to protect them and their family/whānau and stop future disease outbreaks.
The MMR vaccine is free for young people who are eligible to receive publicly funded healthcare in New Zealand. If you are not sure whether you or your child has had two doses of MMR please check your Plunket book or call to speak to one of our nurses as we may have the information. Two doses of MMR are recommended. There are no safety concerns with having extra doses.
Please call and make an appointment with the nurses for your free MMR vaccine.
