With one confirmed case (@16 Feb) of measles here in New Zealand, you will want have easy access to our resources and also Manatū Hauora (Ministry of Health), and public facing resources from Te Whatu Ora. Let us know if you need specific information and can't find it.

  • Please notify the Medical Officer of Health as soon as you suspect measles – do not wait for a laboratory confirmation.
  • Primary care is encouraged to find out if their staff are immune to measles. If there is measles exposure on-site, immunisation records may be requested.
  • Exposure events listing (contact tracing is being used where possible) 

At IMAC we are doing a promotion of measles vaccination on social media, and will continue this as long as needed. Our resources are here:
