Measles Immunization Catch-up Program

Posted On Wednesday April 10, 2019

Please see the attached letter for important information regarding Interior Health's program to quickly update the students' vaccinations particularly for measles, mumps, and rubella (MMR).

"If your child has a record of two doses of the MMR vaccine, they are up-to-date for measles protection. You will only get a consent package if your child is not up-to-date."

"Kindergarten students will continue to be immunized at health centres...If your child has not received two doses of measles-containting vaccine, you will receive an automated telephone reminder to call your health centre to book an appointment."

For more information, please read the attached letter. Contact information is included if you would like to follow up with any questions or concerns.
