  author={Lucija Tomljenovic},
No pharmaceutical drug is devoid of risks from adverse reactions and vaccines are no exception. According to the world’s leading drug regulatory authority, the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA), vaccines represent a special category of drugs in that they are generally given to healthy individuals and often to prevent a disease to which an individual may never be exposed [1]. This, according to the FDA, places extra emphasis on vaccine safety. Universally, regulatory authorities are… 

Hopes, hesitancy and the risky business of vaccine development

Recent policy conversations about vaccination programmes primarily target the problem of vaccine hesitancy and the lack of public participation at the level required for community immunity, or herd

Economic evaluation of pediatric influenza immunization program compared with other pediatric immunization programs: A systematic review

It is suggested that pediatric influenza immunisation may offer a cost effective strategy when compared with HPV and varicella and possibly more value compared with other childhood vaccines (RV, Hep B, MD and PD).

Infectious disease and health systems modelling for local decision making to control neglected tropical diseases

It is argued that there will be a need to develop local quantitative expertise to support elimination efforts and that locally tailored quantitative analyses can help achieve sustainable and effective control of NTDs, but also underpin the development of local health care systems.

Osýpky, mumps a rubeola

  • 2015
Osýpky, mumps a rubeola majú mnoho vecí spoloč­ ných – ich pôvodcami sú vírusy, prenášajú sa podobne ako nádcha a prejavujú sa horúčkou a vyrážkami (zvyčajne okrúhlymi, červenými, po celom tele). Ich

The views of the general public on prioritising vaccination programmes against childhood diseases: A qualitative study

Evidence from this qualitative study suggests that some members of the UK general public have more nuanced views than the health-maximisation approach when considering how childhood vaccines should be prioritised.



Safety, tolerability and immunogenicity of a Haemophilus influenzae type b vaccine containing aluminum phosphate adjuvant administered at 2, 3 and 4 months of age.

It was concluded that the new (Hib)/AlPO4 vaccine is safe and well tolerated, and induced a good PRP antibody response in healthy two-month-old infants.

A measles outbreak at a college with a prematriculation immunization requirement.

Implementation of recent recommendations to require two doses of measles vaccine for college entrants should help reduce measles outbreaks in college populations.

Immunogenicity and Safety of Two Different Haemophilus influenzae Type b Conjugate Vaccines in Korean Infants

Hib conjugate vaccines appear to be safe and show good immunogenicity in Korean infants and will be important reference data for the implementation of Hib vaccine in the national immunization program of Korea.

Aseptic meningitis as a complication of mumps vaccination.

Clinical features of 165 and 27 laboratory-confirmed mumps vaccine-related meningitis cases that occurred among the recipients of MMR and monovalent mumps vaccines, respectively, during a 1-year period after the introduction of MMR vaccine are analyzed.

Measles outbreak in a fully immunized secondary-school population.

It is concluded that outbreaks of measles can occur in secondary schools, even when more than 99 percent of the students have been vaccinated and more than 95 percent are immune.

Safety and Immunogenicity of Coadministering a Combined Meningococcal Serogroup C and Haemophilus influenzae Type b Conjugate Vaccine with 7-Valent Pneumococcal Conjugate Vaccine and Measles, Mumps, and Rubella Vaccine at 12 Months of Age

There was no evidence of an additive effect; rather, any differences between schedules showed benefit from the concomitant administration of all three vaccines, such as lower overall proportions with post vaccination fevers.

Randomized Trial to Assess Immunogenicity and Safety of Haemophilus influenzae Type b and Neisseria meningitidis Serogroups C and Y–Tetanus Toxoid Conjugate Vaccine in Infants

The investigational Hib meningococcal ACWY polysaccharide vaccine was well tolerated and immunogenic in infants, induced Hib immune responses that were comparable to licensed Hib-TT vaccine, and induced high levels of bactericidal antibodies against N. meningitidis serogroups C and Y.
