National Measles Campaign

The Government is stepping up the fight against measles and protecting hundreds of thousands more young adults by investing up to $40 million for a year-long measles-catch-up campaign.

The campaign targets 15 to 30-year olds who missed their MMR vaccine as children, particularly Māori and Pacific young people.

These vaccinations will be fully funded.

Immunisation is the best way to protect and prevent future outbreaks. We encourage whānau with children and people aged 15-30 who may not have been vaccinated to contact us to book an appointment.
