The routine childhood immunization program remains 1 of the most cost-effective prevention programs in public health. Our analysis demonstrates that because of vaccination, US children born in 2009 will suffer 20 000 000 fewer cases of vaccine-preventable diseases and 42 000 fewer early deaths related to those diseases during their lifetimes. From a societal perspective, at a program cost of $7.5 billion, the routine immunization schedule will save a total of $76 billion in direct and indirect costs, resulting in a net savings of $69 billion and a BCR of 10.1. In other words, from a societal perspective, every dollar spent ultimately saves at least 10 dollars.. Our previous analysis of the routine US childhood immunization program, based on the 2001 birth cohort and the recommended vaccines for them that were in common use, estimated a program cost of ∼$3 billion, and ∼$47 billion in costs averted, a BCR of 16.5:1. Key contributors to the increased costs of the program for the 2009 cohort ...
Aug 28, 2009 During a recent three-day Asian Vaccine Conference, health experts appealed to countries to add "under-utilised vaccines such as those of pneumococcal, haemophilus influenzae type-b (Hib), and rotavirus" into national immunization programs, the Nation reports. "Every child needs to be protected and its their right (to be vaccinated)," Lulu Bravo, chairwoman of the Asian Strategic Alliance for Pneumococcal Disease Prevention, said. She added that the policy would be consistent with the aim of a two-thirds reduction in child mortality by 2015 under the Millennium Development Goals, according to the Nation.. So far, 39 of 92 countries where the pneumococcal conjugate vaccine is sold have added it to their national immunization programs. The result of the vaccine being added to the U.S. national immunization program for children under age five in 2000 reduced the number of children infected from 80 per 100,000 to 4.6 in 2003, the Nation reports. Hong Kong will become the first ...

Over the past four decades, extraordinary progress has been made in establishing and improving childhood immunization programmes around Africa. In order to ensure effective and sustainable positive growth of these childhood immunisations programmes, the development, adaptation and implementation of all interventions (programme activities, new vaccines, new strategies and policies) should be informed by the best available local evidence. An assessment of the peer-reviewed literature on childhood immunization research published in English from 1970 to 2010 was conducted in PubMed and Africa-Wide databases. All study types were eligible for inclusion. A standard form was used to extract information from all studies identified as relevant and entered into a Microsoft Access database for analysis. Our initial search yielded 5436 articles from the two databases, from which 848 full text articles were identified as relevant. Among studies classified as clinical research (417), 40% were clinical trials, 24%
The English national health system experienced a major reorganisation in April 2013. This mixed methods study examined how staff managed to deliver the national immunisation programme within a new health infrastructure and explored the role and contribution of partnership working to programme implementation. A cross-sectional online questionnaire survey and a qualitative evaluation of an urban immunisation board were conducted in 2016. The questionnaire included 38 questions about immunisation responsibilities, collaboration, service evaluation and programme support. It was completed by 199 immunisation providers and 70 people involved in the management of the immunisation programme. The evaluation involved 12 semi-structured interviews, 3 observations of forum meetings and the review of forum meeting minutes. Descriptive statistical analysis of the survey data was performed using SPSS version 23 and qualitative data from both study components were uploaded to NVivo 11 and analysed thematically.

The National Immunisation Program aims to increase national immunisation rates by funding free vaccination programs and communicating information about immunisation to the general public and health professionals.
To optimise the health and cost benefits of Australias immunisation program, accurate data are required about how well the program is performing. Currently, this information is derived from stand-alone databases about vaccine coverage (the Australian Childhood Immunisation Register) and several separate databases about the occurrence of vaccine preventable diseases. We aim to link these datasets, for a cohort of children in Western Australia and New South Wales, to enable more accurate and detailed studies on the relationship between vaccination uptake, timeliness of vaccination, and development of disease, particularly in specific at-risk populations who may experience a higher burden of infection.. ...

Surveillance and developments in 2016-2017 In 2016, about 760,000 children aged 0 to 19 years received a total of 2,140,000 vaccinations within the National Immunisation Programme (NIP). Participation in the NIP was high (more than 90% depending on the vaccine), but dropped by around 0.5% for newborns for the third consecutive year. The participation in vaccinations against human papillomavirus (HPV) declined from 61 to 53 per cent. The number of reports (1,483) of adverse events following immunisation (in total 3,665) in 2016 was comparable to the number of reports in 2015. NIP target diseases The number of reported cases of most NIP target diseases was again low. However, the number of cases of Haemophilus influenzae type b (Hib) disease in 2016 (n=44) was considerably higher than in the previous five years (22-34 cases), with the highest incidence occurring among children under five years of age. Pertussis incidence in 2016 fits within the usual fluctuations. However, six people died from ...

The immunization program was sponsored by the Mahoning County Medical Society and was endorsed by the American Medial Association. Wegner, formerly of Buffalo, New York and Berlin, Germany, served as chairman of the Mahoning County Medical Societys Polio Committee and spearheaded the program. The vaccine developed by Albert B. Sabin, which uses a weakened form of the disease-causing virus, was easier to administer than the injection developed by Jonas Salk, in which the virus is inactivated or killed. Colorless and tasteless, the Sabin vaccine could be dispensed by dropper, mixed with distilled water, or put into a sugar cube. Two phases of mass immunizations using the Sabin vaccine occurred in late 1961 and early 1962 in Youngstown, one on November 30 and ...

THE Department of Health (DOH) bared recently that it has allocated around P650 million this year for its expanded Human Papillomavirus (HPV) School-Based Immunization Program, providing free vaccines to about 722,000 students in seven cities in Metro Manila and 47 provinces nationwide for their protection against cervical cancer and other HPV-related diseases and infections.. "HPV vaccination is part of the DOHs National Immunization Program. Vaccination is a basic right of children and no child shall be deprived of this right. Our children are one of the most important assets of this country; therefore, every effort should be made to promote their welfare and optimum development. They should be protected from vaccine-preventable diseases. And what better way to do this than through vaccination," Health Secretary Dr. Paulyn Jean B. Rosell-Ubial said.. Cervical cancer remains a public-health concern that continues to threaten the welfare and well-being of women and the population as a whole. It ...

In 1974, the World Health Organization (WHO) established the Expanded Programme on Immunization to ensure that all children have access to routinely recommended vaccines (1).* Despite improvement in global coverage with the third dose of diphtheria-tetanus-pertussis (DTP) vaccine (DTP3), from 5% in 1974 to 83% in 2011, almost one fifth of the worlds children still had not received their third dose of the DTP series during their first year of life. In May 2012, the World Health Assembly endorsed the Global Vaccine Action Plan (GVAP) to guide the Decade of Vaccines vision to extend benefits of immunization to all persons. GVAPs key indicators include achieving and sustaining 90% national DTP3 coverage and ≥80% DTP3 coverage in every district by 2015. During 2012, as in the 2 preceding years, an estimated 83% of infants worldwide received 3 doses of DTP vaccine; however, coverage varied among the WHO regions. Among 194 WHO member states, 131 (68%) achieved ≥90% DTP3 national coverage, and 59 ...
The Vaccines for Children(VFC) program was created in August 1993 as a federally-funded program to ensure all children have access to life-saving vaccines. The VFC program is regulated by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and National Immunization Program. The Kentucky Immunization Branch of the Department for Public Health manages the VFC program at the state and local levels, working closely with providers to help develop and implement systems to assess and increase immunization levels statewide.. The VFC program provides vaccines at no cost to eligible children through public and private providers enrolled in the program. All vaccines recommended by the Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices are available through the VFC program. The program acts to reduce vaccine costs which create a barrier to vaccination of eligible children. It also helps keep those children in their medical home for comprehensive health care without having to refer them elsewhere for ...
HPV is a group of virus which can cause penile cancer in men, cervical, vaginal, anal and vulvar cancer in women. It can also lead to throat and rectum cancer irrespective of gender. The virus is transmitted through intimate contact and even spreads through contaminated toilets and use of unhygienic pads. The commercial HPV vaccination is available at private hospitals costing `3000-6000; which is beyond the reach of most patients, especially those in rural areas. This vaccine is given thrice in six months to girls aged 9-13 years. The National Technical Advisory Group on Immunisation (NTAGI) had granted permission earlier to introduce the HPV vaccine in the Universal Immunisation Programme (UIP). The commercial vaccines were made available to the Indian market in 2008, but were limited to private sector. Dr Sandeep Nayak, surgical oncologist from Fortis Hospital said, "This is the second most common cancer in urban areas and the most common one in rural areas of the state. There are two ...

Children with impaired immunity are at particular risk of vaccine-preventable infectious diseases. Immune defects are heterogeneous in nature and may be congenital, acquired, or a temporary or ongoing result of treatment for cancer or haematological disease. Guidelines for the vaccination of these children in the UK were issued by the Royal College of Paediatrics and Child Health (RCPCH) in 2002, and are supplemented on an ongoing basis by advice in the Department of Health (DH) Green Book to reflect changes in the routine childhood immunisation programme. The approach is condition specific, with vaccines omitted or added to the routine programme based on the nature of the immunocompromise. There remains, however, uncertainty about which vaccines will be safe and effective in individual patients, and about the timing of vaccines where immunosuppression is temporary. Research continues to provide new evidence about the optimal vaccination schedule in the immunocompromised child ...
In 1993, Japan stopped using the combination vaccine for mumps, measles and rubella (MMR) in routine immunisations.

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 ...

Rabies is usually transmitted by the bite of an infected animal as the virus is present in the saliva. Dog bites are by far the most common source of infection, particularly in developing countries, however cats, bats, foxes, skunks, raccoons, monkeys and many other animals can also be carriers. Animals may be infectious for five days before they develop symptoms A scratch to the skin, a lick on a fresh skin break or contact of the infected saliva with intact mucous membranes may also transmit rabies - all such suspect contacts should be treated with caution. It may take many weeks or months for symptoms to develop although it is usually 2-8 weeks (but can in rare circumstances be a short as 4 days) ...
People tend to remember disproven false claims as true. Im sure Ive heard this discussed on numerous podcasts (SGU, Inquiring Minds, etc.) and read about it on the Web (here, SBM, etc.) and in books and magazines (Skeptical Inquirer, etc.) but cant currently find a good reference, except this relatively small study. (The PDF or server seems to be having problems. The first time I downloaded it, the last 2 or 3 pages were blank, so there were no references or foot notes, Just tried it twice more and only got 1 page and then nothing.) So my claim that when people are told that something theyve heard about is false, and it is proven to them, they often later remember the original claim but think it was true, is all based on my memory, which might be false.. I hope Im never a witness at a murder trial.. ...
