Coverage rates of the children vaccination programme in Greenland.

Coverage rates of the children vaccination programme in Greenland. Int J Circumpolar Health. 2020 Dec;79(1):1721983 Authors: Albertsen N, Lynge AR, Skovgaard N, Olesen JS, Pedersen ML Abstract In order to estimate the current coverage rate among all children in Greenland, we conducted an observational cross-sectional study identifying all children in Greenland eligible for a vaccination between 1 March 2018 and 16 June 2019. we found an overall national coverage of 85.4%. The national coverage for the vaccinations given at birth was 97.1%, dropping to 94.3%, 87.7% and 83.6% at ages 3, 5 and 12 months. Among children eligible for the Measles, Mumps and Rubella-vaccinations, the national coverage was 76.9% for children aged 15 months and 64.1% for children aged 4 years, but dropping to 40.9% in the districts. At preschool, the national coverage was 79.9%. Among the 12-year-old, the national coverages of the two vaccinations against Human Papilloma Virus were 88.4% and 71.6%, respectively, and for the three Hepatitis B-vaccinations 89.8%, 84.1% and 69.6%. A subgroup-analysis and test of an SMS-reminder system in Nuuk improved the coverage from 57.8% to 75.5% locally. Overall, we found a high national coverage rate among the newborn in Greenland. The national coverage rates of the remaining vaccinations were below the WHO-recommendations, however with great regional differences.Abbreviations: CVP: Children Vaccination Programme; BCG: Bacille Calmette-Guerin; ...

Authors: Li M, Zhao Y, Liu X, Zhang S, Jiang Y, Yang Z Abstract Portal vein tumor thrombus (PVTT) promotes distant metastasis of hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC), which increases the mortality of patients with HCC and PVTT. The aim of the present study was to develop an early risk warning system for distant metastasis of hepatitis B virus (HBV)-associated primary HCC (HBV-HCC) with PVTT. Data from 346 patients (263 and 83 in the modeling and validation cohorts, respectively) who had received primary diagnoses of HBV-HCC and PVTT between January 2012 and June 2015 at Beijing Ditan Hospital (Beijing, China) were retros...

CONCLUSIONS: The season was delayed by sustained VRS circulation. The VE was lower than the national one. It is be essential to promote future campaigns to improve vaccination coverage. PMID: 32252987 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

Authors: Feleszko W, Rossi GA, Krenke R, Canonica GW, van Gerven L, Kalyuzhin O Abstract Introduction: The prevalence of chronic inflammatory airway diseases is rising. Their treatment with corticosteroids increases infection risk, while overuse of antimicrobial agents may increase morbidity and antimicrobial resistance. Non-specific immunomodulatory compounds alter immune responses to both infectious and atopic challenges. These compounds may offer an alternative approach for symptom reduction and prophylaxis against both infections and exacerbations in chronic inflammatory airway disease.Areas covered: We assesse...

Findings from online surveys of members of the public, carried out by the Patient Experience Research Centre, reveal that ineffective communication (including access to information and misinformation) are key concerns for the public, while vaccine development was considered the most urgent research priority.

CORONAVIRUS can have dire consequences for some people who fall victim to the disease. There's currently no vaccine and so, sadly, people do lose their lives. But a "cure" may be possible.

Discussion Vaccines are a mainstay of infectious disease prevention and health promotion. Infants, children and adults benefit from vaccines the most when they are given on the recommended schedules. However there are times when this is not possible as children come to the physician a little early, or a little late, or had unavailable records and so received addition vaccine, etc. There are many questions that arise because of these timing issues such as the one above. Standard vaccine schedules can be reviewed here. Commonly administered vaccines includes: Live-attenuated vaccines Cholera Measles, mumps, rubella (MMR ...

Authors: Albertsen N, Fencker IM, Noasen HE, Pedersen ML Abstract The children immunisation programme in Greenland correlates to the one in Denmark with the addition of the Bacille Calmette-Guerin (BCG)-vaccine and the immunisation against Hepatitis B (HBV). The immunisation rate among children in Greenland has been and is currently unknown and this study aims to estimate the immunisation rates among children in Nuuk from 1 July 2015 until 30 June 2016. We did an observational cross-sectional study based on a statistical extraction identifying all children in Nuuk eligible for an immunization in the children immuni...
