In 2019, a total of 37 measles cases were confirmed in New Zealand between 1 January and 10 March. The age of those infected with measles include an infant aged 27 weeks old (and too young to be vaccinated), children aged 1–5 years, adolescents 10–19 years, young adults 20–39 years, adults aged in their 40s and an adult aged 54 years. The majority of cases have occurred in adolescents aged 10–19 years.
Please check out http://www.immune.org.nz for all the information. Anyone who thinks they might have measles should ring ahead to the Practice/Clinic for advice first.https://www.stuff.co.nz/national/health/111204843/measles-outbreak-live-interview-with-canterbury-medical-officer
