Early use of a partially-matched influenza vaccine alongside social distancing reduces hospital utilisation and mortality

Posted on

In a simulation study using a dynamic disease model for the UK, Sam Lovick Consulting with colleagues, Van Hung Nguyen and Allen Bollands, show the value of early intervention in an influenza pandemic using a partially-matched vaccine. The simulation assumed that the partially-matched vaccines is less effective at reducing transmission than a matched vaccine that […]

Early intervention in an influenza pandemic with a pre-pandemic vaccine

Sam Lovick Consulting presented the following at the 7th International Conference on Infectious Disease Dynamics in December 2019. It addresses the health benefits that could arise in the US from a vaccine available at pandemic onset which is not precisely matched to the circulating strain. The modelled vaccine is sufficiently closely matched to provide some […]
