Q Fever in Rural Australia: Education Versus Vaccination.

08:00 EDT 7th August 2018 | BioPortfolio

Summary of "Q Fever in Rural Australia: Education Versus Vaccination."

Q fever is an infection caused by Coxiella burnetii, a zoonotic disease acquired from both wild and domestic animals. Northern rural New South Wales (NSW) communities in Australia have an increased risk of exposure to this organism. Both the acute and chronic phases of the infection are associated with significant morbidity, which is often increased by delayed recognition and treatment. Recent termination of vaccination programs in Australia may increase the risk of infection in these populations.
