Medical Bulletin – December 2023 edition

In this edition, we focus on testing recommendations for measles and mumps, in particular the availability of PCR testing for these conditions, and the importance of prompt notification. We also highlight the need for appropriate protection from mosquito bites as we move into the Buruli ulcer transmission season.

As the year ends, we would like to wish all health care providers Happy Chanukah, Merry Christmas and a happy new year. Thank you all for your efforts in keeping the Victorian community safe and healthy.
