    A vaccinologist says a catch-up plan to prevent measles spreading further, needs to go up a gear


    Nearly 16-hundred people have caught the disease since the start of the year.

    They include two women whose unborn babies died.

    Helen Petousis-Harris from Auckland University says health authorities will be able to crank things up when there are enough vaccines in the country.

    An extra 100-thousand doses of the MMR vaccine are expected to arrive in the next few months.
