A study was carried out in 6 Kecamatans in Yogyakarta. A total of 56 and 163 blood samples were collected from 4—7 month pregnant women and mothers 17—35 years of age. The objectives of this study was to know the immune respons against tetanus after being vaccinated with tetanus toxoid adsorbed during pregnancy (a prospective study) and to know the decrease of the antibody level 1—4 years after vaccination (a retrospective study).
