Measles immunization clinics set for Red Deer

  • May. 7, 2014 3:58 p.m.

Alberta Health Services (AHS) is providing Central Zone residents requiring measles vaccine with additional opportunities to be immunized at some upcoming clinics.

They run at the Johnstone Crossing Community Health Centre, 300 Jordan Parkway, on May 7, 9, 12, 16 and 20th from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. and May 24 from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.

These drop-in measles immunization clinics will offer vaccine to infants six months of age to less than 12 months of age; children 12 months of age or older who have not yet received their first dose of measles vaccine; children four years of age and older who have not yet received their second dose of measles vaccine; individuals born in or after 1970 who have not received two doses of measles vaccine and health care workers, regardless of year of birth, who are not immune to measles.

Individuals who have already received two doses of measles vaccine, as per the routine immunization schedule, do not require any additional doses of measles vaccine.

Appointments for routine immunizations, including childhood measles vaccine, also continue to be offered.

Central Zone residents uncertain of their immunization history, or their child’s immunization history, are also encouraged to contact their local Community Health Centre or Public Health office, or Health Link Alberta at 1-866-408-5465.
