A series of rubella epidemics occurred in Alaska in 1963-1964 in isolated Eskimo and Aleut communities in which the disease had been absent for at least 20 years. Details of one of these epidemicsappear elsewhere. In this communication, an attempt will be madeto analyze the epidemiological implications of these outbreaks. Several controversial concepts will be expressed concerning the infectiousness of rubella as opposed to measles and the problemof subclinical and second infections with rubella.
