Needle size for vaccination procedures in children and adolescents | Cochrane

Vaccines contain antigens that make our immune system produce antibodies that can protect against disease. Antigens are modified or partial forms of the virus, bacteria, or the toxin that cause the disease that the vaccine protects against. Because the antigen is altered from its original form it cannot cause disease, but it can produce an immune response.

California ends vaccine exemptions on grounds of belief—will other states follow?

After a bitter battle, California has ended vaccine exemptions on the basis of religion or personal belief. Under the new law, signed by Governor Jerry Brown on 30 June, unvaccinated children in the state will not be allowed to attend school, day care programs, and nurseries, unless they have a medical reason, such as an allergy, for not receiving a vaccination. Previously, just two other US states, West Virginia and Mississippi, limited exemptions to medical reasons.

The ring vaccination trial: a novel cluster randomised controlled trial design to evaluate vaccine efficacy and effectiveness during outbreaks, with special reference to Ebola

A World Health Organization expert meeting on Ebola vaccines proposed urgent safety and efficacy studies in response to the outbreak in West Africa. One approach to communicable disease control is ring vaccination of individuals at high risk of infection due to their social or geographical connection to a known case. This paper describes the protocol for a novel cluster randomised controlled trial design which uses ring vaccination.

Ebola: evaluating vaccines during epidemics

Will vaccines be effective? Would trials be ethical? Are trials even required? These are some of the questions that dominated health policy discourse throughout the current Ebola tragedy in West Africa. The epidemic of Ebola viral disease resulted in almost 27 000 cases, more than 11 000 deaths, and crippled already weak public health infrastructures.1 The welcome reduction in numbers of cases has, however, produced another conundrum and highlighted the challenges in evaluating the efficacy of vaccines in the middle of unpredictable epidemics. The linked paper by the Ebola ça suffit ring vaccination trial consortium (doi:10.1136/bmj.h3740) describes a novel trial design using “ring vaccination” to test one of the early Ebola vaccine candidates (rVSV-ZEBOV) in Guinea.2 The dwindling number of cases means that phase III studies may not have enough power to demonstrate or rule out efficacy using the gold standard of individual randomisation trials.3 Since we still do not have markers for correlates of protection against the Ebola virus, we need efficacy studies …
