Measles

If you believe you have symptoms* associated with measles please do not come to the medical centre, instead please call us on 03 541 8911 and ask to speak to a nurse who will make the appropriate arrangements. This is a really infectious disease and we want to avoid spreading it to others who visit the Health Centre.

*First symptoms

  • a persistent high fever
  • a cough
  • a runny nose
  • sore and watery ‘pink’ eyes
  • sometimes small white spots on the back inner cheek of your mouth.

Day 3–7 of illness

A blotchy rash which tends to start on your face, behind the ears, before moving over your head and down your body. The rash lasts for up to a week.

Get immunised

The best protection against measles is the Measles Mumps and Rubella (MMR) vaccine. You need two doses of MMR to be fully immunised. If you were born after 1968, or unsure if you are immune, contact us on 03 541 8911 and ask to speak to a nurse.

MMR vaccines are free for all children, and any adults who have not previously received two doses of MMR.

If you have any other questions about measles, please ring and speak to a nurse.
