Seroprevalence of Rubella was determined in 580 women including 80 women of medical community of district Amritsar, by ELISA test. The overall Rubella IgG seropositivity was 68.8% while in women of medical community it was 80%. Maximum number of women were seropositive (77.2%) in age group 26-35 years. Significantly higher rates were observed in women of urban areas and those belonging to lower socioeconomic class. Although the incidence of seropositivity was more in women with history of adverse pregnancy outcome than those with normal obstetric performance, the difference was statistically not significant (p > 0.05). Serologically, immune status showed poor correlation with history of past Rubella virus like infection.
