Complications of herpes zoster in immunocompetent older adults: Incidence in vaccine and placebo groups in two large phase 3 trials

An adjuvanted herpes zoster (HZ) subunit vaccine, HZ/su, demonstrated high efficacy against HZ and postherpetic neuralgia (PHN) in two randomized, observer-blind, placebo-controlled trials in adults aged >50 and >70 years (ZOE-50 and ZOE-70, respectively). Data from ZOE-50 and ZOE-70 trials were analyzed to evaluate the efficacy of HZ/su against
mortality, hospitalizations, and non-PHN complications of HZ including HZ-associated vasculitis, stroke, and disseminated, ophthalmic, neurologic, and visceral diseases.

Des stratégies potentielles pour améliorer les taux de vaccination infantile au Canada : Document de principes de la SCP

Les taux de vaccination sont sous-optimaux au Canada. Certains pays utilisent des stratégies comme des preuves de vaccination obligatoires pour entrer à la garderie ou à l’école et des incitations financières. D’autres stratégies pourraient fonctionner dans le contexte canadien, telles que la remise, à l’entrée à l’école, d’un dossier de tous les vaccins administrés, la création de registres de vaccination provinciaux ou territoriaux, l’information aux parents et aux enfants d’âge scolaire au sujet des maladies évitables par la vaccination et l’adoption de mesures afin que les parents puissent s’assurer plus facilement de la vaccination complète de leurs enfants.
