  1. Fulltext. An epidemiology investigation of a rubella outbreak among the Amish of Northeastern Ohio.

    Article - En anglais


    From April 1990 to April 1991, 278 cases of rubella were reported to the Ohio Department of health.

    Of these, 276 (99 percentJ were among the Amish of northeastern Ohio.

    The outbreak involved eight counties in an area that contains large settlements of Old Order Amish.

    Members of this community of Amish frequently take religious exemption from recommended immunization practices and are believed to represent a high proportion of Ohio's rubella-susceptible persons.

    Vaccination history was known only for 146 of the Amish people.

    Of those, only four had a positive history of rubella vaccination.
