Uni students uncertain of their immunisation status

From First Up, 5:54 am on 5 September 2019

There was a mixture of frustration and apathy among Auckland University students about the measles - as the number of cases in the city continues to rise. Our producer Lydia Batham and videographer Claire Eastham-Farrelly went to the university campus to see what people knew about the outbreak. According to an ESR report on the measles outbreak released on Monday, 288 people aged between 20 to 29 had been diagnosed with measles, while those aged 10 to 19 made up a further 195 cases. Lydia Batham also spoke to Dr Nikki Turner from the Immunisation Advisory Centre about the people that really need to consider getting vaccinated.
