Free Measles Vaccine

Free Measles Vaccine
 
The Victorian Department of Health and Human Services has just expanded eligibility criteria for the free Measles (MMR) vaccine.
 
Infants aged from six (6) months to less than 11 months can receive a free dose of MMR vaccine prior to overseas travel.  This dose is in addition to the scheduled MMR vaccine doses usually administered at ages 12 months (MMR) and 18 months (MMRV).
 
One (1) or two (2) doses of free MMR vaccine is also available for all adults born during or since 1966 without evidence of receiving two (2) documented doses of valid MMR vaccine or without serological evidence of immunity. 
 
The free Measles (MMR) vaccine is available for all Medicare and non-Medicare card holders.
 
Please make an appointment with one of our GPs if you think you are eligible for a free Measles (MMR) vaccine.  Consultation fees apply.
