  • Denmark, Spain and the United Kingdom eliminated measles;
  • The Republic of Moldova, Sweden and the former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia eliminated rubella;
  • Croatia, Greece, Iceland, Lithuania, Montenegro and Uzbekistan eliminated both measles and rubella.
  • Spain and United Kingdom achieved elimination status for rubella as of 2015
