Interim analyses of the 2016-17 influenza vaccine effectiveness showed variable results depending on timing of the analysis and geographical setting. We conducted a population-based retrospective cohort study based on the analysis of health-related administrative data to assess the effectiveness of the 2016-17 influenza vaccine among the elderly population of a north-eastern Italian area. Data on 64854 subjects ≥65 years of age were analyzed up to April 30, 2017. The influenza vaccine was… Expand

Effectiveness of influenza vaccine in reducing influenza-associated hospitalizations and deaths among the elderly population; Lazio region, Italy, season 2016-2017
TLDR
Although VE was low, vaccination still provided benefits in preventing influenza-related hospitalizations and deaths in the elderly, particularly among those vaccinated in prior seasons, and efforts should be made to improve vaccine uptake and the utilization of vaccines with greater effectiveness in the oldest elderly. Expand
Determinants of vaccination uptake, and influenza vaccine effectiveness in preventing deaths and hospital admissions in the elderly population; Treviso, Italy, 2014/2015-2016/2017 seasons
TLDR
A health benefit of the influenza vaccination in the elderly population is suggested, and efforts should be focused on strategies to increase the vaccination uptake as important instrument of prevention. Expand

TLDR
This study contributes to the body of evidence of a greater efficacy of enhanced vaccines, and MF59-adjuvanted trivalent inactivated vaccine (MF59-TIV in particular) over conventional vaccination strategies in the elderly. Expand

TLDR
Influenza vaccination was modestly effective among adults in preventing hospitalizations and the need for intensive care associated with influenza pneumonia. Expand

TLDR
As the A(H3N2) vaccine component has not changed for 2017/18, physicians and public health experts should be aware that IVE could be low where A( H3n2) viruses predominate. Expand

TLDR
Interim VE analysis presented that the protection of laboratory-confirmed influenza by seasonal influenza vaccination did not show the statistical significance in South Korea in the 2016–2017 influenza season. Expand

TLDR
These interim VE estimates indicate that influenza vaccination reduced the risk for outpatient medical visits by almost half, and persons aged ≥6 months who have not yet been vaccinated this season should be vaccinated as soon as possible. Expand

TLDR
Overall, the influenza vaccination appeared to have a low impact on the study cohorts, and was more effective in subjects <85 years of age and in those affected by comorbidity. Expand

A new method of classifying prognostic comorbidity in longitudinal studies: development and validation.
TLDR
The method of classifying comorbidity provides a simple, readily applicable and valid method of estimating risk of death fromComorbid disease for use in longitudinal studies and further work in larger populations is still required to refine the approach. Expand
Comorbidity measures for use with administrative data.
TLDR
The present method addresses some of the limitations of previous measures and produces an expanded set of comorbidities that easily is applied without further refinement to administrative data for a wide range of diseases. Expand
A combined comorbidity score predicted mortality in elderly patients better than existing scores.
TLDR
The combined score may offer improvements in comorbidity summarization over existing scores in similar populations and data settings and yielded positive values for two recently proposed measures of reclassification. Expand
