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.
