For men born between April 2, 1958 and April 1, 1979, we will carry out a rubella antibody test and regular rubella vaccination based on the Vaccination Law.
Since July 2018, the number of rubella patients has been increasing, especially in the Kanto region, and the majority of patients are men in their 30s to 50s. Of these, the males born between April 2, 1958 and April 1, 1979 are the generation who have never had the opportunity to receive official vaccination against wind rash, and the antibody prevalence rate is also high. Women and other generations account for about 90%, while men of that generation are as low as about 80%.
In view of this situation, as a nationwide system, men born between April 2, 1958 and April 1, 1979 are subject to routine rubella vaccination (Rubella 5th term). I decided to provide an opportunity to receive one official vaccination.
In Chiba City as well, those born during the above period will first be tested for rubella antibodies , and as a result, those with low rubella antibody titers will be vaccinated against rubella. (Both antibody test and vaccination are free).
