About 90 percent and perhaps more with the new campaigns have protective antibodies and vaccines for those who do not recommend the vaccine s, bearing in mind that should not become pregnant within months after being vaccinated HOW IS IT TRANSMITTED?
The reservoir of this disease is the human being. The infection is transmitted by direct contact with patients, through droplets or secretions from the nasal passages and pharynx.
The incubation period of the disease is 14 to 23 days and can be passed one week before the eruption period, and at least four days after it begins. Since we do not always have symptoms, it is possible that an apparently healthy person transmitting the virus.
Infants with congenital rubella expel large amounts of virus in pharyngeal secretions and urine and are an important source of infection to their contacts.
