Texas Children's Hospital vaccine experts present 4 studies
Date:5/12/2010

HOUSTON (May 4, 2010) Advances in vaccine delivery and efficacy were discussed at the 44th National Immunization Conference sponsored by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). A research study by each of the four directors from the Center for Vaccine Awareness and Research at Texas Children's Hospital was presented. Held in Atlanta, more than 1,600 health professionals and medical experts attended the conference and explored innovative strategies for developing programs, policy and research to promote immunizations.

"We're proud of the body of research that the Center for Vaccine Awareness and Research was able to share at the National Immunization Conference," said Dr. Carol J. Baker, center executive director and chair of the Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. "Our research studies on attitudes toward vaccinations, rotavirus prevention, cocooning to prevent pertussis and school-based immunization programs have provided the scientific community with valuable data that we can use in educating parents about immunizations."

Along with Baker, the center's three additional directors who had findings from their specialty area presented at the conference are: Drs. Julie A. Boom, director of Infant and Childhood Immunization; C. Mary Healy, director of Vaccinology and Maternal Immunization; and Amy B. Middleman, director of Adolescent and Young Adult Immunization.

About the Research Studies

  • Working with the National Foundation for Infectious Diseases, Baker utilized a national telephone survey to identify parental barriers to immunization. She found that childhood influenza immunization rates remained significantly low. Survey results of 500 mothers living with children ages six months to 18 revealed that many moms hold "magical" or "wishful" beliefs about immunization against flu, stating that it is unnecessary. Nearly two-thirds of the respondents
