Auckland GP's waiting for measles vaccines

From Afternoons with Jesse Mulligan, 1:24 pm on 12 September 2019

The ministry of health has sent 3000 measles vaccines to Auckland to address the shortages being experienced as practices struggle to cope with the increased demand. Dr Jacqueline Allan at Tiakina Te Ora in Papakura has turned patients away and has not had any more sent to her.
