Dear Parents & Caregivers,

Please read the following important information regarding Measles and outbreaks in the Pacific region.

Families visiting Tonga, Samoa or New Zealand, or receiving visitors from these countries may get exposed to measles. Ensure you watch out for symptoms of Measles and get vaccinated – vaccination is the best way to protect your whole family.

  • The measles shot is free – two doses protects you for life.
  • It’s safe to have another measles shot if you’re not sure if you’ve had two doses.
