Abstract
In spite of prevalence of diphtheria, there were scant reports about immunity to diphtheria Korea. The Schick tests were done in the admitted patients to the pediatric department of the SUNH and in the children at the Bupyung area. Among the total children, 22.5% were Schick-positive. The positive rate of the patients of SUNH is 19.7%, which is different form that of the BuPyung children, i.e., 26.4%. The highest positive rate is in six to ten age group. The peak positive age at the SUNH patients is older than that of Bupyung Children. But there was no significant between two groups in eleven to fifteen age group. The positive rates of the primary &/or booster immunized group are much lower than that of the others. Among the nonimmunized 28 infants, 8 were Schick-positive. All of them are above 2m of age. The Positive rate of them imcreases they become older.
