To obtain insight into mumps immunity 9 years after introduction of vaccination in The Netherlands, antibodies were measured in a national sample (n = 8298) and in clustered religious groups with low vaccine acceptance (n = 254). All sera were tested by indirect ELISA, and agreement with neutralization assay was assessed in a subsample (n = 623). Overall seroprevalence in the adult age groups in the national sample was 96.2% (95% confidence interval 95.4-97.0%). Seroprevalence was somewhat… CONTINUE READING
