From the 1st October 2020 the childhood immunisation schedule was updated. There is now a visit at 12 months and 15 months of age for the Measles, Mumps and Rubella (MMR) vaccine. This is a change as previously this vaccine was administered at 15months and 4 years of age. We are now actively working through those children aged between 15 months and 4 years who require the 2nd dose of MMR now. Please see attached links for further info or email nurse@halswellmc.pegasus.net.nz if have further questions.
