Summary of "Vaccination timeliness and associated factors among preterm infants at a tertiary hospital in Uganda."

Preterm infants are at increased risk of infections including vaccine preventable diseases. Therefore, timely vaccination is crucial to ensure adequate disease protection. Information on whether preterm infants are vaccinated according to chronological age as recommended is limited in low-income countries.

Late-onset sepsis (LOS) in preterm infants is a leading cause of mortality and morbidity. Timely recognition and initiation of antibiotics are important factors for improved outcomes. Identification o...

Vaccination timeliness and delay in low- and middle-income countries: a systematic review of the literature, 2007-2017.

Traditional measurements of vaccine coverage at specific ages can mask poor vaccine timeliness. However, optimal measurement of timing is unclear due to variations in countries' recommended vaccinatio...

Postnatal growth in preterm infants during the first year of life: A population-based cohort study in China.

In preterm infants (i.e. the gestational age less than 37 weeks), postnatal growth remains a concern. This study used multicenter longitudinal data from China's Under 5 Child Nutrition and Health Surv...

Early Antibiotic Therapy and Vaccination

Neonatal Sepsis is one of the most common causes of death in preterm infants. Therefore, up to 80% of very low birth weight infants receive antibiotic therapy in their first week of life. ...

Effect of Morning vs. Evening Vaccination on Hypoxia and Bradycardia of Preterm Infants: a Randomised Controled Trial

Hypoxia/bradycardia are common symptoms after vaccination of preterm infants. Adults show diurnal variations in vaccination response, due to circadian regulation of the immune system. The ...
