The association is insensitive to confounding by factors observed in National Immunization Survey-Child, but investigation of unobserved factors such as vaccine hesitancy could provide critical information to guide intervention strategy.

We present an alternative, societal framework for economic evaluations that encompasses a broader set of socioeconomic benefits in addition to health benefits. Quantifying a more comprehensive taxonomy of PCV’s benefits will help to address potential undervaluation and may be sufficient not only to justify recommendation and reimbursement but also to stimulate efforts and investment toward closing coverage gaps.

Abstract Insulin quality and efficacy determine glycemic control, which determines quality of life for people with diabetes. Insulin efficacy is reduced by heat exposure, especially in tropical climates, remote areas, and with improper handling. Insulin doses can be adjusted based on blood glucose monitoring, which may compensate for lack of viability. However, a measured response may be difficult with other biopharmaceuticals. Thermochromic vial monitor technology developed for oral polio vaccines (vaccine vial monitors) is an inexpensive, easily available, visible modality which can be used for insulin and other...
