CORU informs national policy on pandemic flu

19 May 2011

CORU has informed UKpolicy on the use of vaccination against pneumonia as a countermeasure to pandemic flu.

CORU developed a mathematical model for estimating the number of deaths and hospitalisations that could be avoided by use of a vaccine against pneumonia in the advent of an influenza pandemic. This work directly informed the policy process within Department of Health and led to the Joint Committee on Vaccination and Immunisation decision that "using PPV23 as a countermeasure against pandemic influenza would not be cost effective and is not advised".
