Measles and MMR vaccine update

Measles and MMR vaccine update

Measles vaccine is no longer restricted.

The child immunisation vaccine programme is ongoing and a free immunisation is also available to any individual susceptible to measles, mumps or rubella (which includes unvaccinated adults under age 50).

A new measles immunisation campaign is scheduled to commence in May 2020. This will be targeted at young adults, aged 15 – 29, with a focus on Maori and Pacific individuals.
