There are now over 400 cases of measles in Counties/Manukau with no end in sight.
The hardest hit age groups are those aged 0-4 and 15-24 yrs old.
While we currently do not have any further cases within PHS it is highly likely we will do within the coming months.
Vaccinations are free from your local GP.
If you do suspect your child or family member has measles please keep them at home and contact Healthline on 0800611116 and they will talk you through the next steps.
