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

said that healthy children don't need to be vaccinated and over half of the mothers agreed that other ways to avoid influenza are just as effective as immunizations. The study also showed that when the pediatrician left the decision up to the parent, over half decided not to immunize their child. Based on these results, Baker recommended that future communications strategies implement a multi-pronged messaging approach targeted to parents that directly addresses each barrier identified.

  • The effectiveness of the rotavirus vaccine was the subject of findings presented by Boom. Using a case-control assessment of age-eligible children for a five month period in 2008, and again for a six month period in 2009, Boom's research proved that the pentavalent vaccine sustained protection against severe rotavirus disease in children until they turn two years old. While the effectiveness of the vaccine was known for the first year, this study remains one of few that verifies the drug's effectiveness in older children.

  • Protecting infants from infectious disease was also addressed by Healy's study, which provided detailed results of one of the nation's first cocoon strategy vaccination programs. Recommended by the CDC, the cocoon strategy involves vaccinating the immediate family members of newborns against pertussis (whooping cough) to surround the infant with a "cocoon" of people who can not spread the infection. The program has administered more than 10,000 immunizations. More than 90 percent of all mothers at the hospital and at least one other family member in 60 percent of families offered the vaccine were vaccinated. Among families who received the vaccine, 99 percent did so before the baby was one week old. As pertussis outbreaks continue to occur periodically in the U.S., Healy has been contacted by medical professionals from around the country seeking information on how to develop a similar program.
