Using computer simulations to compare pertussis vaccination strategies in Australia.

Abstract:

High levels of notified pertussis in adolescents and adults, persisting severe disease (hospitalization and deaths) in infants despite high childhood immunization coverage, together with the availability of adult-formulated pertussis vaccines, have made alternate strategies for vaccine control of pertussis an important issue in Australia.
