Epidemiological, serological, and statistical studies were used.
Results. The incidence of controlled infections (measles, mumps, rubella, diphtheria, tetanus, pertussis, tuberculosis) was analyzed, by using the Khanty-Mansi Autonomous District (KMAD-Yugra, West Siberia), Russian Federation, as an example, to evaluate the efficiency of mass immunization at the stage of global measles eradication in Russia. Basic trends and differences were found in the incidence of controlled infections at the present stage.
Conclusion. An association was established between the incidence rate and the state of immunization in the KMAD.
