Typhoid Vaccine Introduction: An Evidence-Based Pilot Implementation Project in Nepal and Pakistan

This article, published in Vaccine, reports the results of a pilot program to assess the feasibility of school-based typhoid vaccination in two districts in Kathmandu, Nepal, and two towns in Karachi, Pakistan. Vaccination campaigns were conducted through the departments of health in partnership with not-for-profit organizations. No serious adverse events were reported post-vaccination, and as the campaign progressed, parents were more comfortable with vaccinating their children in schools. The pilot showed that school-based typhoid vaccination programs were safe and acceptable in the four communities of Nepal and Pakistan. ABSTRACT ONLY. (Learn how users in developing countries can gain free access to journal articles.)
