If you are in the 29-51 age gap, as per my posting on the prior page, it should be moderately high on your list of priorities. 

 

Don't forget, there are people (like me currently) who genuinely cannot get an immunization and some very unfortunate souls for which ever having one is a possibility and the disease itself could kill them.

It's high on plenty of peoples priorities. To the point where the (stocks and) GPs aren't coping. And openly advising to wait a few weeks while the most at risk are bumped. 

 

"Given their higher risk, our focus over the short term is to provide MMR immunisations to those under 29 years who are not fully vaccinated. People between the ages of 29 and 50 can expect to get a measles vaccine from their general practice in a week or two," Pink said.

 

It says something when theres a waiting list an another urgent batch of _18,000_ doses due Wed.

I would say if you would be in a high risk then do it. E.G regular contact with young children in Canterbury. If not hold off for now due to the supply pressures. All childcare workers are hopefully already covered.

Yes, I am not sure if I just wasn't clear. I wasn't suggesting hysterically rushing to your local GP in a panic. I was suggesting a measured urgency, as in, don't forget or postpone for 6 months, contact your GP, check your records and make an appointment when it's expedient for them and you, taking into account demand.

Just had my MMR booster done today. As I'm in the above age group.

Although I commented to the nurse, when asked about my prior immunization records. That I lived in Australia up to age 4. They were somehow able to access my health records from Australia. So the ”Manage My Health” website now includes the immunizations I received as a baby.

And it even says that I need to see the doctor in the year 2030 for a tetanus vaccine booster.

So if I had the MMR immunisation as a baby I still need to get a booster now (42)?
( as I’m a classroom Primary teacher)?

Now 26....

 

From NewsHub: https://www.newshub.co.nz/home/new-zealand/2019/03/christchurch-police-prosecutor-diagnosed-with-measles-could-have-infected-many-people.html

 

"A police prosecutor from Christchurch has been diagnosed with measles, and is likely to have infected many other people.

 

A statement from New Zealand's law society confirmed on Tuesday that the prosecutor is likely to have infected others during the period in which they were contagious, but was unaware they had contracted the disease."

 

It just keeps going, and going..... not for the better.

The other story to come out, was a Rangiora primary student. They did openly say only about 28 of the 560 are known not to be up to date (one who keeps records it seems)

 

Some interesting figures now. Approximations on who needs it, turns out 1 in 5

And now from the NZHerald:

 

"Aucklanders are being told to be alert to possible measles symptoms with two cases identified in the region this month."

I will never vaccinate my children. It is unnatural, pointless, probably extremely dangerous and almost certainly harmful.

The issue is because until 1990 NZ ( and most other countries) only used a single dose vaccine,  subsequently studies showed that while a single dose was still quite effective,  some people did not respond fully , and a second dose was required

 

So since 990 MMR in NZ has been a 2-dose vaccine
