Measles – mumps – rubella (MMR) 2nd dose vaccine free for eligible patients

Call Southern Cross Medical Centre to make an appointment for a free MMR vaccine- 9799 2233.

The Victorian Government has funded a measles-containing vaccine program that is available for all adults born during or since 1966 and aged from 20 years without evidence of two documented  doses of valid MMR vaccine or without serological evidence of immunity.

In 2019 there have now been 36 cases of confirmed measles notified in Victoria. Almost all cases are in people who are not fully immunised against measles, who have either travelled overseas or been in contact with travellers from overseas in Victoria. Many cases are people born since 1966 who believed they were fully immunised but who had not had two doses of MMR vaccine.
