Large numbers of 15 to 30 year-olds are not immunised against measles. This puts them at increased risk of catching and spreading measles during future outbreaks. To help address this, a National Measles Promotional Campaign is being developed to support the DHB-led campaign to strengthen New Zealand’s immunisation system, which will run through to August 2021.
