Table 2 One-way sensitivity analysis of the number of CRS cases prevented by rubella vaccination, 2001-2010.

From: Congenital rubella syndrome and autism spectrum disorder prevented by rubella vaccination - United States, 2001-2010

Pre-Vaccine Era CRS Incidence Number of CRS Cases Prevented
Endemic (2.0 cases/10,000 live births) 8300
Overall (4.0 cases/10,000 live births) 16,600
Epidemic (15 cases/10,000 live births) 62,250
  1. Pre-vaccine era CRS incidence was varied to give estimates of the number of CRS cases prevented under various rubella transmission scenarios.
