1. In this retrospective populated-based cohort study, the annual inactivated influenza intramuscular vaccination was associated with a small absolute increase in subdeltoid bursitis. 2. When compared to nurses, vaccination by medical assistants may be associated with increased risk of vaccination attributable bursitis. Evidence Rating Level: 2 (Good) Study Rundown: Vaccination induced bursitis...
1. The full two-dose influenza vaccination series was significantly more effective in preventing future influenza compared to partial vaccination. Evidence Rating Level: 2 (Good) Childhood influenza is a significant health burden, with vaccination being the primary strategy to prevent transmission. Guidelines suggest a primer dose followed by a booster for patients receiving...

1. High-density microarray patches (HD-MAPs) for influenza vaccination were well-tolerated and resulted in similar or improved immune response at one-sixth the standard dose compared to intramuscular injection of commercial quadrivalent influenza vaccine. Evidence Rating Level: 2 (Good) Microarray patches (MAPs) are advantageous compared to needle injection of vaccination due to greater acceptability,...
1. The outbreak of measles in New York City was attributed to the importation of measles and vaccination delay among young children. 2.

Interviews with local health officers had common themes of frustration by lack of authority to...
1. Infantile immunization rates were higher among children whose caregivers received compliance-linked incentives when compared to those who received only mobile phone reminders and those who received no intervention. 2. Incentives were also linked to improved immunization timeliness compared to reminders alone or no intervention. Evidence level: 1 (Excellent) Study Rundown: Efforts...
1. No significant association was identified between maternal intrapartum vaccination with the influenza or tetanus, diphtheria, and acellular pertussis (Tdap) vaccine and infant hospitalization or mortality. 2. Infants hospitalized for respiratory reasons were significantly less likely to be born to mothers who had received the Tdap vaccine when compared to...
