Immunization data quality and factors influencing data generation, handling and use in Wogera District, Northern Ethiopia, 2020

Conclusion: The study revealed that health facilities over-reported immunization data elements in primary health care units. Attentions should be given to address organization, behavioral, technical, and contextual factors influencing immunization data quality, generation, handling, and use. [Ethiop. J.

While there has always been an anti-vaccination fringe, ever since there was such a thing as vaccination (and no, I'm not sure why) the Republican party and conservatives have never as a class been hostile to the vaccine mandates that have been in place in every state for decades.Until now.  The ginned up hysteria about Covid-19 vaccine, based on batshit insane conspiracy theories about microchips and alterations to DNA and lizard people, was just one more manufactured outrage to stir up the MAGAts, like Critical Race Theory, the castration of Mr. Potatohead, and of course the Big Steal, better known as the Big L...

Biomed Res Int. 2022 Jan 15;2022:7697558. doi: 10.1155/2022/7697558. eCollection 2022.ABSTRACTWe aim to identify the common genes, biological pathways, and treatment targets for primary Sjögren's syndrome patients with varying degrees of fatigue features. We select datasets about transcriptomic analyses of primary Sjögren's syndrome (pSS) patients with different degrees of fatigue features and normal controls in peripheral blood. We identify common differentially expressed genes (DEGs) to find shared pathways and treatment targets for pSS patients with fatigue and design a protein-protein interaction (PPI) networ...

This report summarizes health information that was reported to CDC's Electronic Disease Notification (EDN) system for refugees, immigrants, and eligible others who arrived in the United States during 2014-2019. Eligible others are persons who although not classified as refugees (e.g., certain parolees, special immigrant visa holders, and follow-to-join asylees) are eligible for the same services and benefits as refugees.DESCRIPTION OF SYSTEM: The EDN system has both surveillance and programmatic components. The surveillance component is a centralized database that collects 1) health-related data from the overseas medical e...

CONCLUSION: The health status of healthcare workers differs from that of the general population. Thus, it is important to consider the occupational characteristics of healthcare personnel. This study is unique in that it was conducted based on medical use indicators rather than survey data.PMID:35040297 | DOI:10.3346/jkms.2022.37.e22
