A seroepidemiological study was carried out to explore the risk factors of a measles outbreak that occurred among school children at a rural village (Li-Tse) in Taiwan.
Among the 1166 participants, the percentage susceptible before the outbreak was 10,5% (122/1158) which was estimated as the sum of measles IgG-negative 129/1158) and IgM-positive 193/1166) individuals.
Among 340 vaccinated children, 16 (4.7%) were measles IgM-positive and 10 (2.9%) were measles IgG-negative; therefore the vaccine failure rate was estimated to be 7.6% (26/340) and vaccine efficacy was 79.7% (95% confidence interval [Cl]: 65.0-88.5).
