BC Government’s measles vaccine catch-up program update

April 29, 2019 4:44 PM

Dear Parents/Guardians and Caregivers,

RE: BC Government’s measles vaccine catch-up program for school-aged children from April to June 2019 – UPDATE

The measles vaccine catch-up program for school-aged children is currently underway. As we continue to see measles cases throughout the Lower Mainland, and as government prepares for mandatory reporting of vaccines to schools, we are taking steps to ensure your child’s vaccines are up to date.

We are reviewing student records to determine who has been vaccinated. Fraser Health is mailing letters directly to households for those students that are not up to date with measles vaccines.

Due to the large volume of students, it will take several weeks to contact all affected students. It is not necessary to request your child’s records at this time. (more…)

Last year in British Columbia 131 workers lost their lives to workplace injury or disease.  

On Friday, April 26 at 11am the Maple Ridge – Pitt Meadows School District will observe one minute of silence to recognize those who have been injured by accidents or disease and mourn those who have died from workplace accidents or disease. 

Please join us in paying tribute to fallen workers and raising awareness about creating healthy and safe workplaces. For more information about the Day of Mourning in BC, visit: http://www.dayofmourning.bc.ca/

BC Government’s Measles Immunization Catch-Up Program For School-Aged Children

April 2, 2019 3:33 PM

Letter from Dr. Shovita Padhi, Medical Health Officer and Medical Director, Fraser Health

Dear Parents/Caregivers,

As you may have heard, the BC Government has announced an initiative to catch up all school-aged children (K-12) with measles vaccines. This is an opportunity for unimmunized and under-immunized children to catch-up on their vaccinations. There is no measles outbreak within our region; however, we are working with the province, our health-care partners and school districts to increase immunity amongst B.C.’s school-aged children. 

Most people in Canada are protected against measles infections through immunizations. Two doses of either measles, mumps and rubella vaccine (MMR) or measles, mumps, rubella, and varicella vaccine (MMRV) is 99 per cent effective at preventing measles. Children receive one dose of MMR at 12 months of age followed by one dose of MMRV starting at four years of age. For more information on measles and measles containing vaccine, please visit https://www.fraserhealth.ca/health-topics-a-to-z/immunizations/diseases-and-immunizations/measles#.XJKezeaouUl  (more…)
