Immunisation Awareness month

Measles is a highly infectious viral illness that can lead to serious complications. Vaccination is the best way to protect yourself, your whānau and community from catching and spreading measles. Measles is in Aotearoa New Zealand from February 2023 so get vaccinated if you have not been.



WHOOPING COUGH is an infectious disease that causes coughing and difficulty breathing. It can be very serious in young babies. They can catch whooping cough from family/whānau members so make sure you, your older children and extended family are up-to-date with vaccinations. Whooping cough is currently in Aotearoa New Zealand and as it is very infectious it's important that as many people as possible are protected from catching it. Young children (less than a year old) are particularly at risk of severe illness and hospitalisation with whooping cough.
