Vaccine Preventable Diseases

  • Since 1999, there have been no cases of measles in the Region of Peel. The declining incidence of measles is attributable to the implementation of the two-dose measles vaccine schedule in 1996.

  • The incidence of mumps and rubella have also decreased since 1996 because mumps and rubella vaccines are routinely given a second time along with the measles vaccine (MMR – Measles/Mumps/Rubella conjugate vaccine).

  • In Peel, the incidence of pertussis has been low and stable since 1996 (approximately less than four cases per 100,000). Children under one year of age have the highest rate of pertussis.
