    A study with RA 27/3 attenuated rubella virus vaccine (Plotkin strain) showed that this produced a significant antibody response in all of twenty-one vaccinated non-immune children without any appreciable marked clinical reactions. Serological examination of 53 non-immune and 29 immune siblings living in the same households failed to show any evidence of transmission of infection.
