Measles Outbreak

Since April 2016 there have been at least 50 confirmed cases of measles in New Zealand. Cases have been reported in Waikato, Northland, Nelson Marlborough and Horowhenua. Measles is a highly infectious disease that affects both adults and children. Measles is more serious than many people realise. Of the recent cases in New Zealand, 7 people have required hospital treatment.

Measles starts with a fever, cough, runny nose and/or sore eyes followed a few days later by a rash. People are infectious from 5 days before to 5 days after the rash appears. Most of the recent cases have occurred in unimmunised people. Immunisation, with 2 doses of the measles/mumps/rubella (MMR) vaccine, remains the best way to prevent infection and spread of measles within the community. Immunisation is free for anyone born from 1 January 1969 who has not previously received 2 doses of MMR vaccine. 

Where can I get advice and information on measles?

For further information on measles and measles immunisation, visit the Ministry of Health Website or the Immunisation Advisory Centre website, or call the Immunisation Advisory Centre toll-free on 0800 IMMUNE (0800 466 863).
