    Abstract

    An occupational health department in a district general hospital in Newcastle upon Tyne screened 487 women of childbearing age for rubella immunity who were prospective employees and whose immunity state was unknown. Ninety per cent of these women were immune. Of the 51 who were found to be susceptible, 29 accepted vaccination.
