Measles IgG requests

10 Sep 2019

The Waikato Medical Officer of Health advises that people with documentation of one dose of measles vaccine may not be able to access second dose currently. They should ask to be contacted by GP when second dose is available. In the interim they should not be excluded from their workplace unless there has been a confirmed case of measles in the workplace, in which case second dose would be prioritised on our advice and then they may return to the workplace. People with no doses documented should follow current advice, which is to have MMR1 as ‘catch-up’ and not seek immunity testing.
