Project: Risk factors for vaccine-preventable bacterial infections in adults. In Canada, vaccination against diseases caused by encapsulated bacterial pathogens Streptococcus pneumoniae, Neisseria meningitidis and Haemophilus influenzae type b is provided via the publicly funded immunization program, mostly targeting children, with some vaccines targeting adult groups of risk. Pediatric immunization provides protection to unimmunized populations via herd immunity. However, serious infections still cause substantial morbidity and mortality.
The goal of the project: to identify risk factors for developing serious infections caused by encapsulated bacteria.
Methodology: chart review of hospitalized cases.
Significance: identify modifiable risk factors to inform public health policy.
