Factors Related to Chinese Parents' HPV Vaccination Intention for Children
Conclusions: The AS04-adjuvanted HPV-16/18 vaccine administered according to a 2-dose schedule to girls 4–6 years of age induced a high and sustained immunologic response with an acceptable safety profile during the 30 months following vaccination.
Conclusions: The PHiD-CV vaccination program in Brazil has resulted in important reductions of pneumococcal disease and substantial cost savings. Instead of switching PCVs, expanding vaccine coverage or investing in other health care interventions would be a more efficient use of resources to improve the health of the population in Brazil.
