Cloned cells in which this DNA alteration is successful are then injected into mouse EMBRYOS to produce chimeric mice. The chimeric mice are then bred to yield a strain in which all the cells of the mouse contain the disrupted gene. Knockout mice are used as EXPERIMENTAL ANIMAL MODELS for diseases (DISEASE MODELS, ANIMAL) and to clarify the functions of the genes.
Members of the class of compounds composed of AMINO ACIDS joined together by peptide bonds between adjacent amino acids into linear, branched or cyclical structures. OLIGOPEPTIDES are composed of approximately 2-12 amino acids. Polypeptides are composed of approximately 13 or more amino acids. PROTEINS are linear polypeptides that are normally synthesized on RIBOSOMES.
Extrachromosomal, usually CIRCULAR DNA molecules that are self-replicating and transferable from one organism to another. They are found in a variety of bacterial, archaeal, fungal, algal, and plant species. They are used in GENETIC ENGINEERING as CLONING VECTORS.
Virus diseases caused by the ORTHOMYXOVIRIDAE.
A formulation for presenting an antigen to induce specific immunologic responses. It consists of an assembly of antigens in multimeric form. The assembly is attached to a matrix with a built-in adjuvant, saponin. ISCOMs induce strong serum antibody responses, and are used as highly immunogenic forms of subunit vaccines.
A live VACCINIA VIRUS vaccine of calf lymph or chick embryo origin, used for immunization against smallpox. It is now recommended only for laboratory workers exposed to smallpox virus. Certain countries continue to vaccinate those in the military service. Complications that result from smallpox vaccination include vaccinia, secondary bacterial infections, and encephalomyelitis. (Dorland, 28th ed)
Proteins found in any species of bacterium.
The product of meiotic division of zygotes in parasitic protozoa comprising haploid cells. These infective cells invade the host and undergo asexual reproduction producing MEROZOITES (or other forms) and ultimately gametocytes.
Serum globulins that migrate to the gamma region (most positively charged) upon ELECTROPHORESIS. At one time, gamma-globulins came to be used as a synonym for immunoglobulins since most immunoglobulins are gamma globulins and conversely most gamma globulins are immunoglobulins. But since some immunoglobulins exhibit an alpha or beta electrophoretic mobility, that usage is in decline.
A soluble factor produced by activated T-LYMPHOCYTES that induces the expression of MHC CLASS II GENES and FC RECEPTORS on B-LYMPHOCYTES and causes their proliferation and differentiation. It also acts on T-lymphocytes, MAST CELLS, and several other hematopoietic lineage cells.
Proteins isolated from the outer membrane of Gram-negative bacteria.
The clear, viscous fluid secreted by the SALIVARY GLANDS and mucous glands of the mouth. It contains MUCINS, water, organic salts, and ptylin.
Vaccines or candidate vaccines used to prevent PAPILLOMAVIRUS INFECTIONS. Human vaccines are intended to reduce the incidence of UTERINE CERVICAL NEOPLASMS, so they are sometimes considered a type of CANCER VACCINES. They are often composed of CAPSID PROTEINS, especially L1 protein, from various types of ALPHAPAPILLOMAVIRUS.
A combined vaccine used to prevent infection with diphtheria and tetanus toxoid. This is used in place of DTP vaccine (DIPHTHERIA-TETANUS-PERTUSSIS VACCINE) when PERTUSSIS VACCINE is contraindicated.

Suppression of Moloney sarcoma virus immunity following sensitization with attenuated virus. (1/7909)

Murine sarcoma virus (Moloney strain) (MSV-M)-induced tumors are unusual in that they regularly appear less than 2 weeks after virus inoculation, progress for 1 to 2 weeks, and are rejected by normal adult BALB/c mice. Rejectio leaves the animals immune to tumor induction. In the present study, presensitization of normal adult BALB/c mice with attenuated MSV-M resulted in an altered pattern of tumor immunity. Injection of active MSV-M into the presensitized animals resulted in tumor induction and rejection similar to that observed in normal animals, but rejection failed to produce protection against the secondary inoculation with MSV-M. After the second inoculation with active MSV-M, tumors appeared and progressed but ultimately were rejected. Over 80% of the mice died, 25% after the primary challenge and the remainder after the secondary challenge. At death, all mice had histological evidence of leukemia which was the probable cause of death. The animals that died following the secondary challenge also had evidence of disseminated MSV-M. Solid tumor nodules were found in skeletal muscle distant from the original site of inoculation, and active MSV-M was isolated from spleen and lungs. The possibility that the results were produced by specific suppression of MSV-Moloney leukemia virus immunity is discussed.  (+info)

Transcutaneous immunization with bacterial ADP-ribosylating exotoxins as antigens and adjuvants. (2/7909)

Transcutaneous immunization (TCI) is a new technique that uses the application of vaccine antigens in a solution on the skin to induce potent antibody responses without systemic or local toxicity. We have previously shown that cholera toxin (CT), a potent adjuvant for oral and nasal immunization, can induce both serum and mucosal immunoglobulin G (IgG) and IgA and protect against toxin-mediated mucosal disease when administered by the transcutaneous route. Additionally, CT acts as an adjuvant for coadministered antigens such as tetanus and diphtheria toxoids when applied to the skin. CT, a member of the bacterial ADP-ribosylating exotoxin (bARE) family, is most potent as an adjuvant when the A-B subunits are present and functional. We now show that TCI induces secondary antibody responses to coadministered antigens as well as to CT in response to boosting immunizations. IgG antibodies to coadministered antigens were also found in the stools and lung washes of immunized mice, suggesting that TCI may target mucosal pathogens. Mice immunized by the transcutaneous route with tetanus fragment C and CT developed anti-tetanus toxoid antibodies and were protected against systemic tetanus toxin challenge. We also show that bAREs, similarly organized as A-B subunits, as well as the B subunit of CT alone, induced antibody responses to themselves when given via TCI. Thus, TCI appears to induce potent, protective immune responses to both systemic and mucosal challenge and offers significant potential practical advantages for vaccine delivery.  (+info)

Zonula occludens toxin is a powerful mucosal adjuvant for intranasally delivered antigens. (3/7909)

Zonula occludens toxin (Zot) is produced by toxigenic strains of Vibrio cholerae and has the ability to reversibly alter intestinal epithelial tight junctions, allowing the passage of macromolecules through the mucosal barrier. In the present study, we investigated whether Zot could be exploited to deliver soluble antigens through the nasal mucosa for the induction of antigen-specific systemic and mucosal immune responses. Intranasal immunization of mice with ovalbumin (Ova) and recombinant Zot, either fused to the maltose-binding protein (MBP-Zot) or with a hexahistidine tag (His-Zot), induced anti-Ova serum immunoglobulin G (IgG) titers that were approximately 40-fold higher than those induced by immunization with antigen alone. Interestingly, Zot also stimulated high anti-Ova IgA titers in serum, as well as in vaginal and intestinal secretions. A comparison with Escherichia coli heat-labile enterotoxin (LT) revealed that the adjuvant activity of Zot was only sevenfold lower than that of LT. Moreover, Zot and LT induced similar patterns of Ova-specific IgG subclasses. The subtypes IgG1, IgG2a, and IgG2b were all stimulated, with a predominance of IgG1 and IgG2b. In conclusion, our results highlight Zot as a novel potent mucosal adjuvant of microbial origin.  (+info)

Noncompetitive expansion of cytotoxic T lymphocytes specific for different antigens during bacterial infection. (4/7909)

Listeria monocytogenes is an intracellular bacterium that elicits complex cytotoxic T-lymphocyte (CTL) responses in infected mice. The responses of CTL populations that differ in antigen specificity range in magnitude from large, dominant responses to small, subdominant responses. To test the hypothesis that dominant T-cell responses inhibit subdominant responses, we eliminated the two dominant epitopes of L. monocytogenes by anchor residue mutagenesis and measured the T-cell responses to the remaining subdominant epitopes. Surprisingly, the loss of dominant T-cell responses did not enhance subdominant responses. While mice immunized with bacteria lacking dominant epitopes developed L. monocytogenes-specific immunity, their ability to respond to dominant epitopes upon rechallenge with wild-type bacteria was markedly diminished. Recall responses in mice immunized with wild-type or epitope-deficient L. monocytogenes showed that antigen presentation during recall infection is sufficient for activating memory cells yet insufficient for optimal priming of naive T lymphocytes. Our findings suggest that T-cell priming to different epitopes during L. monocytogenes infection is not competitive. Rather, T-cell populations specific for different antigens but the same pathogen expand independently.  (+info)

Ovine MHC class II DRB1 alleles associated with resistance or susceptibility to development of bovine leukemia virus-induced ovine lymphoma. (5/7909)

For the further characterization of bovine leukemia virus (BLV)-induced leukemogenesis, we investigated the association between polymorphism of ovine leukocyte antigen (OLA)-DRB1 gene and tumor development after infection of sheep with BLV. We infected 28 sheep with BLV and cloned exon 2 of the OLA-DRB1 gene from asymptomatic animals and from animals with lymphoma Sequence analysis revealed that, among 12 healthy sheep without any evidence of tumor, ten (83.3%) carried DRB1 alleles encoding Arg-Lys (RK) at positions beta70/71 as compared with only 6 (37.5%) of the 16 sheep with lymphoma, which suggested that alleles encoding the RK motif might protect against development of tumors after infection by BLV. By contrast, alleles encoding Ser-Arg (SR) at positions beta70/71 were present at a significantly elevated frequency in sheep with lymphoma as compared with the healthy carriers, which indicated that OLA-DRB1 alleles encoding the SR motif might be positively related to susceptibility to tumor development. The two amino acids in these motifs line a pocket that accommodates the side chain of a bound peptide according to a model of the crystal structure of human leukocyte antigen (HLA)-DR1. To analyze immunoreactions of sheep with alleles that encoded RK or SR at beta70/71, we selected sheep with either the RK/SR genotypes or the SR/SR genotypes and immunized them with a mixture of multiple synthetic antigenic peptides that corresponded to T-helper, T-cytotoxic, and B-cell epitopes of the BLV envelope glycoprotein gp51. Two weeks after the last immunization, all of the sheep were challenged with BLV. Sheep with the RK/SR genotype produced neutralizing antibodies against BLV; they eliminated BLV completely within 28 weeks of the BLV challenge, and they gave strong lymphocyte-proliferative responses to the peptides used for immunization. Moreover, such animals did not develop lymphoma. By contrast, sheep with the SR/SR genotype continued to produce BLV throughout the experimental period and developed terminal disease. Our results indicate that the differences in immunoresponse were due to differences in major histocompatibility complex class II alleles and reflected the risk of BLV-induced leukemogenesis. In addition, it appears that susceptibility to tumor development may be determined to some extent by polymorphic residues binding to antigenic peptides directly within the binding cleft of the OLA-DR molecule.  (+info)

Immunosurveillance and the evaluation of national immunization programmes: a population-based approach. (6/7909)

Mass vaccination can change the epidemiological dynamics of infectious diseases. It may result in a limited persistence of natural and vaccine-induced immunity and a higher mean age of infection, which may lead to a greater risk of complications. The epidemiological situation should be monitored and immunosurveillance based on the assessment of specific antibodies against vaccine-preventable diseases in human serum is one of the tools. In order to estimate the immunity of the Dutch population reliably, a large-scale, population-based, collection of serum samples was established (8359 sera in a nation-wide sampling and 1589 sera from municipalities with low vaccine coverage). In contrast to collecting residual sera from laboratories, this approach gains extensive information by means of a questionnaire regarding the determinants of the immune status and the risk factors for the transmission of infectious diseases in general. The population-based approach gives a better guarantee that the data are representative than collecting sera from laboratories does.  (+info)

Rubella immunisation and contraception--a case for re-examining the policy of the Department of Health and Social Security. (7/7909)

Now that immunisation against rubella is available, it would at first sight seem reasonable to identify all potential mothers susceptible to this disease and immunise them. Preliminary screening, however, carried out in order to restrict vaccination to seronegative subjects, not only serves no useful purpose, but is counter-productive.  (+info)

Chlamydia infections and heart disease linked through antigenic mimicry. (8/7909)

Chlamydia infections are epidemiologically linked to human heart disease. A peptide from the murine heart muscle-specific alpha myosin heavy chain that has sequence homology to the 60-kilodalton cysteine-rich outer membrane proteins of Chlamydia pneumoniae, C. psittaci, and C. trachomatis was shown to induce autoimmune inflammatory heart disease in mice. Injection of the homologous Chlamydia peptides into mice also induced perivascular inflammation, fibrotic changes, and blood vessel occlusion in the heart, as well as triggering T and B cell reactivity to the homologous endogenous heart muscle-specific peptide. Chlamydia DNA functioned as an adjuvant in the triggering of peptide-induced inflammatory heart disease. Infection with C. trachomatis led to the production of autoantibodies to heart muscle-specific epitopes. Thus, Chlamydia-mediated heart disease is induced by antigenic mimicry of a heart muscle-specific protein.  (+info)

Preregistration efforts are continuing in Victoria school districts as we gear up for the 2014-15 school year. Any parents of students currently enrolled have hopefully completed the documents to register for the coming school year.. Parents of students who will be coming to VISD for the first time next year are strongly encouraged to contact their neighborhood school for information. We are asking all parents to add checking your childs immunizations records to the back-to-school to-do list. Victoria ISD is following state rules by not allowing students to attend school if they are not current on required immunizations. Health services coordinator Murphey Stuart, who is a registered nurse, encourages parents to use the next several months to consult their family health care provider to make sure their children are where they should be in immunizations. In August, when schools conduct their registration days, school nurses will be on-hand to review the immunization records. Any parent who does ...
Sixty-five percent of children in Norfolk and Newport News were UTD on immunizations at 12 months and 53% at 24 months of age. These rates are comparable with other urban areas studied before 1994.3,4 We found immunization rates differed significantly by structural health care system factors, including usual type of immunization provider and insurance type, as well as by subjective measures of access to immunization services determined from parent report. After adjustment for sociodemographic factors, significantly lower 12-month immunization rates were observed among those insured by Medicaid or CHAMPUS, if parents reported waiting times ,1 hour in clinics or problems obtaining transportation to services, and if parents did not have their childs immunization record available at home. At 24 months, having the military contract clinic as the usual immunization provider, and report of problem obtaining an appointment were significantly associated with lower immunization rates. Lack of enrollment ...
Poughkeepsie… The Dutchess County Department of Health has announced changes to its Childrens Immunization Clinics to better meet residents needs. Starting July 1st, the Childrens Immunization Clinics will be operated on an appointment based system to reduce waiting times at the clinics.. The Childrens Immunization Clinics are particularly busy during the summer months as parents prepare for the Back to School season and bring their children for the necessary immunizations required for school. The previous system of first come, first serve led to longer waiting times for families. Offering families the ability to schedule their childrens immunizations reduces the amount time families have to spend in the waiting room, making it even easier to get the immunizations done, said Commissioner of Health Dr. Michael C. Caldwell, MD, MPH. Making our immunization process more efficient helps us to continue to improve the childhood immunization rate here in Dutchess County and helps ensure ...
Infection by Streptococcus pneumoniae is the most frequent opportunistic infection observed in HIV-infected children. PCVs are immunogenic and efficacious in normal children and offer hope of reducing pneumococcal infections in HIV-infected children. The degree to which children on HAART are protected by prior immunizations and are responsive to new immunizations is still largely undefined. This study is designed to answer whether PCV immunizations are safe and effective. The immune responses to prior immunizations and responsiveness to booster doses of vaccines against measles, pertussis, and hepatitis B virus of children on HAART will also be examined. Answers to these questions will determine whether these children are likely to be protected against these clinically relevant pathogens and whether they should routinely receive booster doses of these vaccines after a period of HAART.. Patients are stratified on the basis of CD4 percentage and age. Patients that previously received a primary ...

Background Neisseria meningitidis is a leading cause of meningitis and septicaemia. The development of quadrivalent protein-polysaccharide conjugate vaccines against serogroups A, C, W135 & Y offers the possibility of broader protection against the organism across all age groups. Methods We conducted an open-label randomised clinical trial in 150 healthy adult volunteers aged 18-70. Participants were randomised to receive either 2 doses of a conjugate quadrivalent ACWY vaccine 28 days apart (MenConj-MenConj), or one dose of a polysaccharide quadrivalent ACWY vaccine followed by one dose of a conjugate quadrivalent ACWY vaccine 28 days later (MenPS-MenConj). Meningococcal polysaccharide-specific memory B cells were enumerated in peripheral blood at days 0, 28 and 56 by cultured EliSpot assay. Results Median memory cell numbers were similar at baseline in the two groups (medians of 1.0-3.0 cells per million cultured lymphocytes). By 56 days, median memory cell numbers were higher in the MenConj-MenConj
Objectives. To assess the association between parents perceptions of various barriers to vaccination and their preferences regarding specific strategies designed to reduce missed vaccination opportunities and the immunization status of their children and to estimate the overall contribution of the perception of barriers on underimmunization among children who are vaccinated in pediatricians offices.. Methods. As part of a nationwide study on the immunization status of children followed by practicing pediatricians, parents of children who were 8 to 35 months of age and seen consecutively at 177 participating practice sites completed a survey on health beliefs regarding the vaccination process. In addition to demographic information, parents were asked to identify the most difficult thing about obtaining immunizations, as well as their preferences regarding the maximum number of vaccine injections that should be administered to their child at 1 visit and for receiving a needed immunization ...

National Immunization Month. Immunizations are public healths great success story with the disappearance of many infectious diseases.. Shots may hurt a little, but the diseases they can prevent are a lot worse - some are even life-threatening. Immunization shots, or vaccinations, are essential. They protect against infections like measles, mumps, rubella, hepatitis A and B, polio, tetanus, diphtheria and pertussis (whooping cough). Immunizations are also important for adults, especially those against pneumonia, influenza and shingles.. Your immune system helps your body fight germs by producing antibodies to combat them. Once it does, the immune system remembers the germ and can fight it again. Vaccines contain germs that have been killed or weakened. When given to a healthy person, the vaccine triggers the immune system to respond and thus build immunity.. Before vaccines, people became immune only by actually getting a disease and surviving it. Immunizations are an easier and less risky way ...
NCDOH participates in the Vaccine for Children (VFC) Program. Vaccines are provided free of charge to children under 19 years of age if they qualify for the VFC vaccine.

A vaccine that elicits broadly neutralizing antibodies (bNAbs) against HIV-1 is likely to be protective, but this has not been achieved. To explore immunization regimens that might elicit bNAbs, we produced and immunized mice expressing the predicted germline PGT121, a bNAb specific for the V3-loop and surrounding glycans on the HIV-1 spike. Priming with an epitope-modified immunogen designed to activate germline antibody-expressing B cells, followed by ELISA-guided boosting with a sequence of directional immunogens, native-like trimers with decreasing epitope modification, elicited heterologous tier-2-neutralizing responses. In contrast, repeated immunization with the priming immunogen did not. Antibody cloning confirmed elicitation of high levels of somatic mutation and tier-2-neutralizing antibodies resembling the authentic human bNAb. Our data establish that sequential immunization with specifically designed immunogens can induce high levels of somatic mutation and shepherd antibody ...

This systematic review identified that concepts related to ethnicity and perceptions of ethnic differences affect immunisation decision-making among parents from BAME backgrounds, living in the UK. Factors related to ethnicity, such as religion, upbringing and migration and language, affected parents perceived importance of immunisations, whether immunisations were permitted or culturally acceptable and their understanding of immunisation/the immunisation schedule, which may have facilitated or inhibited immunisation. Beliefs about ethnic differences resulted in some parents being concerned about biological differences in risk of disease or immunisation side effects or that the UK environment was riskier than their home environment. Beliefs about ethnic differences caused parents to demand tailored information.. Ethnicity is a complex construct and its different facets and associated factors should be considered when seeking to understand the immunisation decisions of parents from BAME ...

Immunisation (say im-you-ny-zay-shun) means putting a special type of substance (a vaccine) into your body so that your body can learn how to fight an infection. That way, you will be protected (or immune) from getting sick if someone around you has the germs for that infection. There are immunisations for many different infections, including some rather nasty ones. Immunisation is an easy and very safe way of protecting you. Many immunisations are given as an injection (by a needle in your arm or leg) or sometimes as a medicine that you drink.. Vaccination means pretty much the same thing as immunisation - getting a vaccine (usually by injection) that will help your body to protect itself from an infection in the future..

Most immunisations involve an injection given by a doctor or nurse in the arm or leg, where there is plenty of flesh and it ...

Call you local county health department and ask the health department to check OSIIS. OSIIS is the Oklahoma State Immunization Information System, which is a centralized immunization registry that keeps electronic records of vaccines given by health care providers who use the registry.

Childhood immunization recommendations and schedules may vary by province and territory. Immunizations are recommended because they protect against diseases (give immunity) or make a disease less severe if your child does get it. These schedules outline the immunizations and booster shots needed from birth through age 18, as well as when catch-up immunizations should be given.. The schedule for a premature infant is the same as for a full-term infant. But sometimes the hepatitis B vaccine is delayed. Many immunizations require more than one dose, given at varying intervals. Although your child does not need to restart the series if a scheduled dose is missed, the immunization should be given as soon as possible. Consult your health professional or public health unit if your child missed an immunization or to find out whether your child needs a specific immunization. The Canadian National Advisory Committee on Immunization (NACI) recommends a specific childhood immunization schedule, but ...

House Bill 1059, which aligns state law with HIPAA regulations in order for schools and other entities to continue to access child immunization records, is headed for the Senate after Representatives passed the bill on a 45-24 vote.. This is a matter of public health, Rep. Karen Soli said of the bill..

Background. Childhood immunisations are a cost-effective public health intervention for prevention of infectious diseases. Immunisation coverage is still suboptimal, however, which may result in disease outbreaks. Immunisation at every contact with a health facility is a strategy developed by the World Health Organization in order to improve immunisation coverage. Objectives. To estimate the prevalence of missed opportunities for immunisation at different levels of healthcare in the Western Cape Province, South Africa, and assess factors associated with missed opportunities. Methods. The study included a health facility-based cross-sectional exit survey of caregivers with children up to 5 years of age, followed by a qualitative exploration of staff attitudes towards immunisation. Results. The overall prevalence of missed opportunities for immunisation was 4.6%; 81.3% of caregivers brought Road-to-Health booklets (RTHBs) to consultations; and 56.0% of health workers asked to see the RTHBs during

The proportion of Ugandan children who are fully vaccinated has varied over the years. Understanding vaccination behaviour is important for the success of the immunisation programme. This study examined influences on immunisation behaviour using the attitude-social influence-self efficacy model. We conducted nine focus group discussions (FGDs) with mothers and fathers. Eight key informant interviews (KIIs) were held with those in charge of community mobilisation for immunisation, fathers and mothers. Data was analysed using content analysis. Influences on the mothers immunisation behaviour ranged from the non-supportive role of male partners sometimes resulting into intimate partner violence, lack of presentable clothing which made mothers vulnerable to bullying, inconvenient schedules and time constraints, to suspicion against immunisation such as vaccines cause physical disability and/or death. Immunisation programmes should position themselves to address social contexts. A community programme that
Immunizations, also called vaccinations, are one of the greatest achievements in public health. Vaccines prevent disease in people who receive them. Additionally, if enough people in the community are vaccinated, the entire community can be protected because there is little opportunity for an outbreak to occur. The American Academy of Pediatrics supports routine immunizations for all children to protect each child and the public. See the following link for more information. AAP - Vaccine Safety: The Facts Please contact your or your childs medical provider or the Wood County Health Department for immunizations. The Wood County Health Department holds immunization clinics at their offices in Marshfield and Wisconsin Rapids once a month. Restrictions and charges may apply. To schedule an appointment for our immunization clinics, for information on cost or restrictions, or to speak to a nurse about immunizations please call the Wood County Health Department at 715-421-8911 or 715-387-8646. ...

The recent introduction of the human papillomavirus (HPV) vaccine into the routine immunisation schedule for girls in the UK has reaffirmed the possibility of widespread adolescent immunisation, assuming appropriate prior consultation and resource allocation. On the back of this success, it is timely to consider the case for extending the programme of school-based adolescent immunisations to include the provision of both additional primary immunisations as well as important booster doses of vaccines given earlier in childhood. Such a programme, if well designed, would ensure that individual protection from vaccine preventable disease was maximised prior to school leaving and, of equal importance in some cases, that herd immunity was sustained more effectively in the population as a whole. The possible contents of a re-invigorated adolescent immunisation programme are discussed considering those vaccines which are already available and for which cost-benefit calculation may therefore be of prime ...
Children who have missed some immunisations will be able to catch up on these next week during a child health campaign, the City of Johannesburg health department said.

We need better decision support for immunizations and we need it available to every clinician whenever they need to evaluate a vaccination history. The number of immunizations are increasing and several times a year the Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices (ACIP) releases new recommendations. The sheer number of recommendations and the complexity of them can even be a challenge to immunization expert clinicians to keep up. What we are calling for is universal access to excellent decision support. To have this basic national infrastructure needs to be put into place:. ...
Immunization averts an estimated 2 to 3 million deaths every year globally. In Ethiopia only quarter of children are fully immunized; the rest are remained at risk for vaccine-preventable mortality. To increase the immunization, its coverage and predictors has to be identified. This study has measured immunization coverage and identified the predictors. Cross-sectional community based study has been conducted within 630 age 12-23 months children in 15 districts of Arba Minch town and Arba Minch Zuria district, Southern Ethiopia in March 2013. Census was done to identify eligible children. The 2005 world health organization expanded program of immunization cluster sampling method has been used.
