10.11.2020 - MMR update


Many teenagers and young adults missed out on measles, mumps and rubella immunisation as children. They may not be fully protected from these diseases. Being immunised now is important to protect them and their family/whānau and stop future disease outbreaks.

Measles virus causes a rash, fever, runny nose, cough and sore red eyes. This virus can cause ear infection, lung infection, brain swelling, or, rarely, death.

Mumps virus can cause fever, headache and swelling around the face. This virus can cause swelling of the testicles, ovaries or breasts. » In severe cases, mumps virus can cause swelling of the layer over the brain or, rarely, brain swelling, or death.

Rubella virus can cause a rash, fever and swollen glands. This virus can be dangerous for a woman who is pregnant. If she has the disease it can damage her baby’s ears, eyes, heart or brain.

The MMR vaccine is free for young people who are eligible to receive publicly funded healthcare in New Zealand. Two doses of MMR protect 99% of people against measles and rubella, and around 85% of people from mumps.

If you are not sure whether you or your child has had two doses of MMR, two doses of MMR are recommended. There are no safety concerns with having extra doses. There are no safety concerns with having the vaccine for people who are already protected from measles.

All children and young people aged under 18 years. Adults born 1969 or later who are eligible to receive publicly funded health and disability services in New Zealand.
