Intussusception among infants given an oral rotavirus vaccine.
TLDR
The strong association between vaccination with RRV-TV and intussusception among otherwise healthy infants supports the existence of a causal relation. Expand
Preventing tetanus, diphtheria, and pertussis among adults: use of tetanus toxoid, reduced diphtheria toxoid and acellular pertussis vaccine recommendations of the Advisory Committee on Immunization
TLDR
Pertussis, tetanus and diphtheria vaccination policy in the United States is reviewed, the clinical features and epidemiology of pertussis among adults are described, and the immunogenicity, efficacy, and safety data of Tdap are summarized. Expand
Preventing tetanus, diphtheria, and pertussis among adolescents: use of tetanus toxoid, reduced diphtheria toxoid and acellular pertussis vaccines recommendations of the Advisory Committee on
TLDR
Adolescents aged 11-18 years should receive a single dose of Tdap instead of tetanus and diphtheria toxoids vaccine (Td) for booster immunization against tetanus, diphTheria, and pertussis if they have completed the recommended childhood DTP/DTaP vaccination series. Expand
Trends in pertussis among infants in the United States, 1980-1999.
TLDR
The limited age group affected, the increased rate of bacteriologic confirmation, and the unchanged severity of illness suggest that an increase in infant pertussis has occurred apart from any change in reporting. Expand
Prevention of pertussis, tetanus, and diphtheria among pregnant and postpartum women and their infants recommendations of the Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices (ACIP).
TLDR
Although pregnancy is not a contraindication for receiving Tdap vaccine, health-care providers should weigh the theoretical risks and benefits before choosing to administer TdAP vaccine to a pregnant woman. Expand
Historical comparisons of morbidity and mortality for vaccine-preventable diseases in the United States.
TLDR
The number of cases of most vaccine-preventable diseases is at an all-time low; hospitalizations and deaths have also shown striking decreases. Expand
Poliomyelitis prevention in the United States. Updated recommendations of the Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices (ACIP).
TLDR
The Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices (ACIP) reaffirms its support for the global polio eradication initiative and the use of OPV as the only vaccine recommended to eradicate polio from the remaining countries where polio is endemic. Expand
Tetanus surveillance--United States, 1998--2000.
TLDR
Efforts by health-care providers are warranted to vaccinate persons with delayed or incomplete vaccination, with emphasis on older persons and persons with high-risk conditions. Expand
Tenofovir versus Placebo to Prevent Perinatal Transmission of Hepatitis B
TLDR
In a setting in which the rate of mother‐to‐child HBV transmission was low with the administration of hepatitis B immune globulin and hepatitis B vaccine in infants born to HBeAg‐positive mothers, the additional maternal use of TDF did not result in a significantly lower rate of transmission. Expand
Nosocomial pertussis: costs of an outbreak and benefits of vaccinating health care workers.
TLDR
A probabilistic model suggests that cost savings and benefits could be accrued by vaccinating HCWs against pertussis, and the number of exposures prevented and the benefit-cost ratio were sensitive to the numberof exposures identified, the incidence of pertussi among HCWs, and HCW turnover. Expand
