In the JAMA Patient Page entitled "Rubella" published in the January
23/30, 2002, issue of THE JOURNAL (2002;287:542), the second sentence under
the heading "Rubella Immunization Schedule" should have read, "Women who receive
the vaccine should use birth control or abstain from sex for at least 28 days
[not ‘3 months'] to avoid becoming pregnant." The Advisory Committee
on Immunization Practices of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention
shortened its recommended period to avoid pregnancy after receipt of rubella-containing
vaccine from 3 months to 28 days in a notice (MMWR Morb
Mortal Wkly Rep. December 14, 2001;50:1117) released shortly
before publication of this JAMA Patient Page.
