Prior-season influenza vaccination history was not associated with reduced vaccine effectiveness in children.
The anti-vaccine movement has proliferated over recent years, thanks in part to its most vocal proponents using social media to churn out often misleading information.
A second dose of Tdap, a reduced-antigen-content tetanus-diphtheria-acellular pertussis vaccine, 9 years after initial vaccination was well tolerated and immunogenic.
An adverse event after immunization may not reoccur with future immunizations, unless the initial reaction was severe.
Immunization with Tdap vaccine during the third trimester of pregnancy resulted in higher concentrations of pertussis toxin antibodies in newborns.
Research results indicated vaccination rates declined as clinic day progressed and that active choice intervention was linked with increased vaccinations.
Population density and structure may impact the length of the influenza season regardless of climatic conditions.
Double-dose influenza vaccine is safe and may increase antibody response in solid-organ transplant recipients
US Food and Drug Administration approval of the Gardasil 9 HPV vaccine has been expanded to include people ages 27 through 45.
2017 to 2018 flu strains affect the very young and elderly especially signifantly; poor vaccine/strain match-up
No association was observed between prenatal vaccination of Tdap vaccination and an increased risk of autism spectrum disorder risk in children.
U.S. pediatricians and family physicians have considerable knowledge gaps regarding serogroup B meningococcal vaccination.
For adolescents and young adults, the co-administration of quadrivalent meningococcal conjugate vaccine with incorporated tetanus toxoid with diphtheria-tetanus-acellular pertussis vaccine is noninferior to isolated vaccination and does not compromise immunity.
For this study, researchers investigated the incidence of primary ovarian insufficiency incidence and estimated risk for POI after vaccination with human papillomavirus, Tdap, influenza and meningococcal conjugate using Kaiser Permanente Northwest electronic health records from 2006 to 2014.
The quadrivalent HPV vaccine is not associated with an increased risk of spontaneous abortion when inadvertently given before or during pregnancy.
Mosaic adenovirus serotype 26-based vaccine induces immune responses in humans, rhesus monkeys
Using state- and individual-level data from the 1995-2014 National Immunization Survey, the effect of a state's Universal Purchase adoption on vaccination rates was estimated.
Parents view cancer prevention as the best reason for guideline-consistent human papillomavirus vaccination.
An increasing amount of families choose to opt out their children from vaccinations required for school entry by obtaining nonmedical exemptions based on religious or philosophical beliefs.
Pharmacists can help increase adult vaccination rates by offering vaccination at lower cost and greater convenience.
The risk of intussusception within 1 to 7 days and 8 to 21 days after rotavirus vaccination was assessed in infants age 28 to 245 days.
Specifically, the types the vaccine protects against are HPV 16, 18, 31, 33, 45, 52, 58 (which cause ~90% of cervical cancer cases worldwide), and types 6 and 11 which case genital warts.
Investigators examined parental hesitancy when discussing human papillomavirus vaccination with providers.
Surveillance of adverse events after diphtheria-tetanus-acellular pertussis (DTaP) vaccine administration reported to the Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System (VAERS) between 1991 and 2016 revealed no new or unexpected adverse events. The vast majority of reported adverse events were non-serious, and local injection site reactions were the most frequently reported events.
No new or unexpected safety issues have been identified in association with DTaP vaccines in the US
Several employees were fired from a Minnesota-based hospital chain for refusing to receive flu vaccination.
Positive mood on the day of influenza vaccination in older adults is associated with enhanced vaccine effectiveness.
Most measles cases in the United States occur in unvaccinated patients.
Infant vaccination effectiveness against HiB and tetanus toxin does not appear to be affected by exposure to biologic therapy taken by mothers with IBD.
Only 78% of health care personnel and only 53.6% of pregnant women received influenza vaccination during the 2016-2017 influenza season.
