Outbreak of Measles in Auckland 


The Auckland Regional Public Health Service has advised us that the measles virus is circulating in the community.  As a precautionary measure, can you please check that your child has immunity either through having received the MMR vaccination, previous measles diagnosis or by a blood serology test.  If not, can you please have your child vaccinated.  Measles poses a risk to pregnant women and those with low immunity.  If your child has a weakened immune system and the school is unaware, please inform Ms Jan Davison, the school nurse.  (dsn@gdc.school.nz)
