Measles Mumps and Rubella Rangatahi Survey

Ko ngā rangatahi, ngā rangitira mō āpōpō.

Between May and August this year we ran an MMR Rangatahi Survey.

The survey is a direct response to a measles outbreak in Aotearoa in 2019, which disproportionately affected Māori.

A total of 849 Rangatahi Māori completed the survey from all over the rohe, providing helpful insights around the numbers of rangatahi Māori that are fully vaccinated against MMR and the attitudes towards vaccination amongst rangatahi Māori.

Our questions were focused on whether, when and where MMR vaccination took place; barriers to MMR vaccination; methods used to access information; preferred forms of communication; and demographics.

This data will now be used to develop Māori-centred approaches to increasing MMR vaccination rates.
