Helping healthcare workers decide : evaluation of an influenza immunization decision tool

Despite free and easy access to influenza vaccine, and resource consuming campaigns, immunization rates among health care workers (HCW) remain unacceptably low. This is in part due to decisional conflict, which may be alleviated by a decision aid. To address this issue we developed the Ottawa Influenza Decision Aid (OIDA) to help HCW make an informed decision about influenza immunization. Results of this study support the OIDA as a useful tool for HCWs considering influenza immunization.

Literature review on one-dose and two-dose varicella vaccination

In 2006, the Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices (ACIP) approved a routine 2-dose varicella vaccination schedule for children. The purpose of this document is to review information on the epidemiology of varicella, compare the effectiveness of one dose of varicella vaccine with two doses, and to consider a potential change to the current National Advisory Committee on Immunization (NACI) recommendation for a one-dose childhood varicella vaccination program.
