Could it be you?

We need local people between the ages of 18-30 to help support the marketing of the Guardians of the Future measles campaign.

About the Campaign

Lots of people aged between 15 and 30 years didn’t get fully immunised against measles when they were children. This puts you at risk of catching and spreading measles.

During the 2019 measles outbreak over 2000 people contracted measles in New Zealand, and 700 needed to go to hospital. The majority of people who got infected were between the ages of 15-30 and weren't immunised. Did you know that measles is even more contagious than COVID-19!

Why we need you

There have been some really great marketing resources produced at a national level, but we think you would make them look even better.

What's next?

We are running a photoshoot on Saturday 13 March and we're hoping you can be the talent. Pop-in and have your hair/make-up done* and a professional photo and your face could be used on posters, social media, and in the newspaper!

Our wonderful Youth Health Nurse Nicole will also be on hand to check your Measles immunisation status and provide a free vaccination if needed.

* Bring your own make-up and we will have someone on hand to help you make the most of your natural beauty.
