Mr La Roche officially received the Howick Local Board’s nomination for a spot on the new heritage panel at this month’s meeting. The panel is one of a number of measures designed to strengthen the council’s approach to heritage. The panel will provide independent advice on various historic heritage matters. More measles spotted Taking action: Wakaaranga School principal Brent Jenkin says unimmunised pupils exposed to measles must stay away from school. Photo: PIP BOURKE LIMIT THE SPREAD By PIP BOURKE PARENTS who send their children to school unimmun- ised amidst a measles epi- demic are asking for trouble, a principal says. As Auckland’s measles crisis worsens, Wakaaranga School moved last week to send home 149 of its pupils who didn’t have evidence to show they had been immunised. The move came after the school was notified that one of its students had the dis- ease. The child was unim- munised and had been unaware they had measles while at school. Principal Brent Jenkin says while he is not entering the debate on whether or not to immunise, it is a parent’s responsibility to ensure other children are not at risk. ‘‘If you choose not to immu- nise then you don’t have the right to risk infecting other people.’’ There are parents out there who probably should feel angry that their children are being unnecessarily exposed to measles, he says. Mr Jenkin is disappointed the Farm Cove primary school still had 45 children in quarantine out of a roll of 700 at the end of last week. ‘‘Who knows what happens from here? ‘‘Some of those kids who aren’t immunised without doubt are going to get measles.’’ It is a Department of Health requirement to quar- antine unimmunised children who have been exposed to the disease. The Auckland region is now in its second and largest measles outbreak for 2011. It began in mid-May and the number of people infected continues to rise. There have been 72 con- firmed cases of measles in the Auckland region as of Monday. Five cases have required hospitalisation. Measles is a serious and highly infectious disease that can make people very sick. One third of cases experience serious complications and in rare cases, death. ‘‘Fortunately for us, it is now the school holidays,’’ Mr Jenkin says. ◆ The Auckland Regional Public Health Service is working to limit the spread of measles as much as possible. ◆ To stop the transmission of the disease it is important that anyone at risk of developing measles does not have any contact with vulnerable and susceptible people like pregnant women, children too young to be immunised and people with immune diseases. ◆ To limit the spread of measles, the health service can quarantine susceptible people from school, work and other activities. ◆ People who are in quarantine should remain at home and away from school, work, group and social activities, sports and recreation events and public places such as cinemas and shopping malls for 14 days since their last contact with an infectious case of measles. ◆ The health service is urging people to be vigilant if they suspect they could have measles or have been exposed to someone who could have measles. ◆ Look out for the signs and symptoms. These include a runny nose, cough, sore eyes and fever or a raised red rash that starts on the face and moves to cover the rest of the body. ◆ If you think you or someone in your care has measles contact Healthline on 0800-611-116 or your doctor. Call ahead before visiting a doctor so the risk of infection can be minimised.
