  • Doctors in Auckland, New Zealand, continue to be frustrated by problems with the supply of measles vaccines, reported The New Zealand Herald.

  • Allan Moffitt, clinical director at the ProCare network, said they had seen unprecedented demand from patients for the vaccine as the measles outbreak continues.

  • He noted vaccine supplies had already been redistributed to clinics in high-risk areas that were running low or had run out, but much of that stock had now been used up.

  • The Ministry of Health is expecting a shipment of 52,000 measles, mumps and rubella vaccines by the end of this weekend.

  • According to the news source, they will be distributed where needed this coming week.
