Long-term follow-up study of rubella antibodies in naturally immune and vaccinated young adults.
Selective rubella vaccination of 12-year-old schoolgirls was introduced in Sweden in 1973 and at the same time a long-term fllow-up cohort study, was initiated.
In 1982, a two-dose programme with a combined vaccine against measles, mumps and rubella (MMR) was introduced and vaccinations were given at the ages of 18 months and 12 years to both boy's and girls.
The cohort initially comprised 486 girls.
It was followed for between 8 and 16 years.
All the girls enrolled were seronegative before vaccination and had seroconverted to a haemagglutination-inhibition (HAI) titre of at least 1:16.
