IS YOUR FAMILY PROTECTED ? – Auckland has a large outbreak of mumps

Is your family protected?

Auckland is in the middle of a large outbreak of mumps and many of these are in our area. Are your child and family protected?

Mumps can cause miscarriage in pregnant women, make young men sterile, and can make young babies, older children and adults very sick.

Has your child been vaccinated with 2 doses of MMR (measles, mumps, rubella) vaccine?

A number of Pacific countries do not immunise against mumps. We need families from Tonga, Fiji and Tuvalu to check with their doctor and to get a mumps vaccination.

Vaccinations are FREE at your family doctor.

Protect your child, your family and our community.
