Measles update

Currently Christchurch has no measles cases. However, the UC Health Centre still wants to see you if you:
• have never received an Measles, Mumps and Rubella (MMR) vaccination in the past
• have commenced a course of MMR and need a 2nd booster
• are uncertain of your vaccination history or have close contact with someone who is unable to be vaccinated such as a young baby or a household contact with compromised immunity

A single measles vaccination given to those born between 1969 and 1994 is sufficient to give 95% immunity and the health authorities are not recommending that these people get a booster shot.

If in doubt, please come and check in with the team at the Health Centre.

Make Compiling a Document Easier

If you are compiling a document from two documents, and you have two monitors (computer screens), this tip will be very useful. They may both be Word documents, or could be emails, PDFs or even a combination of these.

  1. Open both documents and display one on each monitor
    (I like to maximise each one so that it fills the monitor)
  2. Decide which one is the primary document
  3. Drag text from the other document and drop it into place in the primary document.

Two important things to note:
– step 3 above will move the text from one document to the other
– to copy the text from one document to the other, hold down the Ctrl key while you drag and drop the text.

Other tips you may find useful are:
Resize a program window to fit half your screen
View 2 windows on one screen (for twin monitor users)
Four windows on two screens?
View One Word Document in Two Windows
