Northland to get vaccine programme to control meningococcal disease outbreak

A targeted vaccination programme will start in Northland next month to control an outbreak of meningococcal disease.

Health Minister David Clark said advice from clinical experts was that the MenW strain had reached outbreak levels in Northland and the Government should urgently launch an immunisation programme to prevent further spread of the disease.

Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern said there had been a sharp increase in the strain this year.

Northland to get vaccine programme to control meningococcal disease outbreak

https://www.stuff.co.nz/national/politics/108877090/northland-to-ge...

On Tuesday, Northland DHB put out a media release warning the public to be vigilant about a "significant increase" of Group W meningococcal disease in the region.

But in May, clinical microbiologist David Hammer had circulated a letter to DHB staff warning of potential cases.

In the memo, Hammer said "we have not previously had group W strains in Northland but we have had two unrelated cases within one week this year. Sequence typing is awaited but I anticipate that the result will be ST-11".

The vaccination programme would target Northland residents, who are aged nine months to four years, and those aged 13 to 19 years.

Meanwhile keep an eye on this guy who wants vaccinations compulsory

and if he does get into politics, idiots that might vote for him deserve what they get.
