How influenza vaccination policy may affect vaccine logistics.
Summary of "How influenza vaccination policy may affect vaccine logistics."
When policymakers make decision about the target populations and timing of influenza vaccination, they may not consider the impact on the vaccine supply chains, which may in turn affect vaccine availability.

Administration of a vaccine to large populations in order to elicit IMMUNITY.
The cutaneous and occasional systemic reactions associated with vaccination using smallpox (variola) vaccine.
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)
Vaccines used to prevent infection by viruses in the family ORTHOMYXOVIRIDAE. It includes both killed or attenuated vaccines. The composition of the vaccines is changed each year in response to antigenic shifts and changes in prevalence of influenza virus strains. The vaccine is usually bivalent or trivalent, containing one or two INFLUENZAVIRUS A strains and one INFLUENZAVIRUS B strain.
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.
The purpose of this study was to evaluate the coverage rates for influenza vaccination among health-care personnel (HCP), and if the reasons for accepting influenza vaccine by HCP and the frequency of...
This randomized cluster trial was designed to improve workplace influenza vaccination rates using enhanced advertising, choice of vaccine type (intranasal or injectable) and an incentive. Workers aged...
The aim of this study was to explore several important (but uncertain) assumptions in influenza models which affect the estimated benefits of vaccination programs. We combined consideration of these f...
Few studies have investigated the effect of the history of vaccination on the current influenza vaccine uptake. The objective of this paper is to study the effects of vaccine history, for each sex sep...
Estimates of influenza vaccine effectiveness from observational studies that rely on physician-ordered influenza tests may be biased if physician testing behavior is influenced by patient vaccination...
This study wishes to understand: 1. whether vaccination against influenza in coronary artery disease (myocardial infarction and stable angina) patients is as effective as it is in...
Influenza associated pneumonia causes significant morbidity in young HIV-infected children. Although annual vaccination against influenza is recommended for HIV infected children, it has n...
Randomized controlled trial of influenza vaccination versus referral for vaccination in the Emergency department. Is the Emergency Department an effective venue for vaccination for influen...
To further characterize the immune responses induced after an influenza vaccination performed either via the ID or the IM routes in two clearly distinct populations. Objectives:...
We hypothesize that when offered influenza vaccine at little or no cost, in a setting where the value of the vaccine is connected to one's high risk child, vaccination rates for parents wi...
