Conclusion: We showed that large-scale SIAs were effective, but their effects were not long lasting. Given the drop in seropositivity among adults, their susceptibility should be carefully monitored. While older individuals could benefit from the immunization activities, children who were too young to be vaccinated still have a weak seropositivity profile and the optimal age for the administration of the first dose of vaccine should be reconsidered.

The number of measles cases declined in European Union/European Economic Area countries and the United Kingdom in 2020. Reported cases to The European Centre for Disease Prevention and Control decreased from 710 to 54 between January and May. Epidemic intelligence screening observed a similar trend. Under-diagnoses and under-reporting during the coronavirus disease (COVID-19) pandemic should be ruled out before concluding reduced measles circulation is because of social distancing and any community control measures taken to control COVID-19.

AbstractCurrently available evidence supports that the predominant route of human-to-human transmission of the SARS-CoV-2 is through respiratory droplets and/or contact routes. The report by the World Health Organization (WHO) Joint Mission on Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19) in China supports person-to-person droplet and fomite transmission during close unprotected contact with the vast majority of the investigated infection clusters occurring within families, with a household secondary attack rate varying between 3 and 10%, a finding that is not consistent with airborne transmission. The reproduction number (R0) for t...

Follow me on Twitter @RobShmerling This is the time of year when it’s important to think about flu vaccinations. And there’s good reason for that! The flu causes thousands of preventable hospitalizations and deaths each year. But what about other vaccinations? Do you think of them as something for kids? You aren’t alone. And it’s true, a number of vaccinations are recommended for young children as well as preteens and teenagers. These vaccinations have provided an enormous benefit to public health by preventing diseases that were common and sometimes deadly in the past, including polio, rubella, and...

Andrew Wakefield, his claims to the contrary, is antivaccine to the core. To be honest, I’m not sure if he was always antivaccine. After all, around 20 years ago when he was doing his “research” into whether the MMR vaccine causes autism, he was being generously funded by a barrister seeking to sue vaccine manufacturers…

The chicken pox vaccine, formally known as the varicella vaccination, was added to the recommended childhood vaccination schedule in 1995. Prior to this vaccine’s creation, it was a common practice for families to expose children to others who had the chicken pox. The disease was considered a normal part of childhood and it was widely known that chicken pox in childhood posed little to no risk of serious harm. Risks associated with chicken pox are more common in adults and those with compromised immune systems. My Experience With The Chicken Pox Illness And Vaccination I clearly remember exposing my middle child to m...

Conclusion Will Governor Jerry Brown think twice and really risk the wrath of the black community? Will he even read Mrs. Sullivan’s letter or care about the many religious groups opposing vaccinations due to their ingredients? It appears that more governments worldwide are mandating vaccinations on a daily basis and parents are completely powerless to stop them. Who are these people who make all the decisions, and what right do they have to impose their largely unproven theories that ALL vaccinations are safe and effective for ALL children? Let’s face it, it does make you wonder what their real agenda is, does...
