Abstract

A new research article concludes that migrants in the European Union and European Economic Area (EU/EEA) do not have a higher burden of measles in comparison to the native European population, but vulnerable migrant groups may face barriers in accessing routine Measles, Mumps and Rubella (MMR) immunizations. The article therefore suggests that EU/EEA Member States strengthen monitoring of measles cases and MMR vaccination coverage in migrant populations. Two authors from the study, Gemma A Williams from LSE Health and Teymur Noori from the European Centre for Disease Prevention and Control (ECDC), discuss these findings.
