Measles outbreak continues through NZ

Jefferson County reporting first case of measles

Canterbury Medical Officer of Health Dr Ramon Pink is warning New Zealanders about the highly infectious measles disease as the number of cases continue to rise.

Some people have been against vaccines since vaccines were created. I hear the vaccines are in shortage.

Canterbury Primary Response Group coordinator Dr Phil Schroeder said Canterbury had high levels of vaccinated people.

Vaccine conspiracy theories, as well as fears of vaccines linked with autism in children, are clear to see on social media and other areas of the internet. "So many of them won't do it, it's just ridiculous".

But the agency estimated that less than a tenth of the cases are reported to health authorities, and that the real number in 2018 exceeded two million.

The senator cautioned that Trump's position may still change - "It is only Wednesday, and it is the Trump administration". Steve Daines (R-MT) and David Perdue (R-GA) also signaled their support to secure the border ahead of the Senate vote.


"Without urgent efforts to increase vaccination coverage and identify populations with unacceptable levels of under-, or unimmunized children, we risk losing decades of progress in protecting children and communities against this devastating, but entirely preventable disease".

Measles is a serious, highly infectious, potentially life-threatening disease. Sometimes the media goes overboard and people start to panic.

McSherry said the outbreak served as a timely reminder to people about the importance of immunisation. The first was confirmed in Denton County last month.

In fact, it's not really a surprise to see an outbreak of mumps or measles. Twenty-two becomes 44, which soon becomes 88.

The CDC says that adults who do not have evidence of immunity against measles can still get at least one dose of the MMR vaccine through their healthcare provider.

"It is expected that any vaccine orders from South Canterbury that have been made will be fulfilled as usual", she said. That's what is going on now with measles in the United States. Health officials recommend you call ahead to make sure locations have the vaccinations and staffing available to immunize you.

The virus is still common in other countries. "My parents thought they were doing the right thing".

When he was a minor, Lindenberger's parents blocked him for getting shots.

Rebecca Cummings, 24, stay at home mum: "I think people need to be more aware of immunisations".

"We haven't had anybody present with symptoms or suspecting they do".
