Rubella 7

"When I heard we were introducing combined measles and rubella vaccine I was very happy," says Mrs Suphaphane, the immunisation programme manager for Pakse district in southern Laos. "I have seen the tragedy of congenital rubella syndrome and it is a relief we can now prevent it. With this MR vaccine, we can protect the people of Laos against two diseases with a single injection."
