1 case of measles confirmed at Wellington High School

Health officials are asking some year 12 Wellington High School students who aren’t vaccinated against measles to stay home today.


A student has been diagnosed with measles and those who attended classes with the infected child and who aren’t immunised should not attend school. Doctor Annette Nesdale from Regional Public Health says there have been 24 cases of measles in Wellington this year and they’ve managed to get on top of those cases and stop the spread.
