Incidence of measles 2019, by age

During the first ten months of 2019, approximately 71 Italian children aged up to four years old out of a total population of 1,000,000 suffered from measles. This age group recorded the greatest incidence of measles over the period considered. Furthermore, measles was also quite common among people aged 15 to 39 years old. In fact, in 2017, this age group – with 2,855 individuals affected by measles - recorded the highest number of cases.

Regional distribution of measles cases

In 2019, Lazio recorded the highest number of measles cases nationwide. In fact, in the region 517 cases occurred in the year considered. Lombardy and Emilia-Romagna followed in the list.  

Measles vaccination

In 2018, Italy was the European country with the highest number of measles cases registered. A year earlier, the law which made measles vaccination mandatory came into force in Italy. To all appearances the law was effective, given that between 2015 and 2018 the measles vaccination coverage increased by 7.09 percent. The same can be said about the vaccination coverage for some other diseases regulated by this Law, such as rubella and parotitis.
