Measles is a virus that can make adults and children very sick.
It is highly infectious and can spread quickly and easily through breathing, sneezing and coughing. If you are not immune to measles, you can catch the disease just by being in the same room as someone who has it.
PLEASE STAY AT HOME IF YOU THINK YOU HAVE OR HAVE BEEN IN CONTACT WITH MEASLES.
Please talk to our nurses before booking an appointment for
Measles Vaccine. Priority groups are children under 5 years old who are due for their scheduled vaccinations and for Maori and Pacific people 15-29 years who do not have a documented dose of MMR.
Immunisations services are one of the most important services we provide. Immunisation has led to the decline of many lethal diseases including, most recently, meningococcal B meningitis.
Babies are routinely immunised for tetanus, polio, diphtheria, hepatitis B and haemophilus, which are now combined in one injection.
Injections are normally be done by specially qualified nurses or doctors, having ensured beforehand that the child is not ill or suffering from allergies.
Each child has his or her own document to keep a record of these injections.
Liquid Nitrogen Therapy

It comes in a container with a nozzle and is sprayed on the lesion. Often one treatment is all that is needed but sometimes it may need repeating after few days.
We provide this service five days a week, please walk in any time for the treatment
