The impact of Australia's measles control programme over the past decade


, : The impact of Australia's measles control programme over the past decade. Epidemiology and Infection 133(1): 99-105

We reviewed measles surveillance data for 1993-2002 to determine the impact of Australia's measles control initiatives. The introduction of a second dose of measles-mumps-rubella (MMR) vaccine for 10- to 16-year-olds in 1993 was followed by marked reductions in measles notifications and hospitalizations, especially in the targeted age group.
