Influenza Vaccines: More Options and More Opportunities

This article, published in The Journal of Infectious Diseases, discusses the value of comparative studies of influenza vaccines, which provide a uniform way to evaluate the relative performance of different vaccines. The author argues that such studies should continue to be pursued to better elucidate safety, immunogenicity, and efficacy of influenza vaccines in different populations. Further, the evidence generated can guide policy decisions aimed at reaching target populations worldwide and achieving the greatest possible reductions in influenza-related morbidity. ABSTRACT ONLY.
