Measles: School nurses to vaccinate Auckland students

From Checkpoint, 6:17 pm on 11 September 2019

School nurses are finally being signed off as vaccinators to reach 17,000 or so Auckland high school students who may not have had the MMR jab.

Dozens of nurses are doing their final practical assessments at the Manukau Superclinic this week - where they give two jabs under supervision.

Auckland has had 970 confirmed cases of measles so far this year, with the national total at 1172.
