The aim of the study was dynamic laboratory monitoring of the content of post-vaccination IgG to measles virus. Basic and dynamic determination of specific antibodies was carried out by the ELISA («Vector-Best»). 1166 previously vaccinated adults were examined, 34,39% of individuals did not have specific humoral immunity. Then a group of seronegative individuals was formed (n = 30), and vaccinated twice again. The average content IgG to measles virus 1 month after vaccination was 1,20±0,656 IU/ml; 1 month after revaccination – 1,14±0,573 IU/ml; after a year – 1,0±0,671 IU/ml. Identified interindividual differences in the formation and maintenance of a humoral immune response to measles vaccination are described. One person did not form specific immunity; and three persons did not survive it. Laboratory monitoring is an important component of efficiency assessment of vaccination.
