  25. Vaccination is under attack by individuals who occasionally use the legal system to oppose mandatory vaccination laws and in some cases to obtain exemptions for particular children whose parents are opposed to vaccination. During the legal proceedings, as we have witnessed, experts testifying in favor of vaccination may be challenged with references from journals of doubtful quality that oppose vaccination. To provide important references that discuss and disprove claims made against vaccines, the Vaccine Education Center at the Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia has created a library of references addressing certain safety issues that may be useful as an aid and refresher to clinicians giving expert testimony on the safety of vaccines and to lawyers defending vaccination of children. The Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia legal library may be entered through the web address vaccine.chop.edu/safety-references. We would be grateful if you could inform your colleagues about the availability of this resource, which should be of great value for experts testifying for vaccination and for clinicians who need to convince parents about vaccine safety.

    Immunization Action Coalition

    A fantastic website with lots of information about vaccines, vaccine safety and vaccine communication. Targeted audience includes general public as well as healthcare professionals. Several sections are very interesting and informative.
  27. A monovalent rotavirus vaccine was introduced in the Ethiopian Expanded Program on Immunization from November 2013. We compared impact of rotavirus vaccine introduction on rotavirus associated acute diarrhea hospitalizations and genotypic characteristics of rotavirus strains pre-and post-vaccine introduction. Sentinel surveillance for diarrhea among children <5 years of age was conducted at 3 hospitals in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia from 2011 to 2017. Stool specimens were collected from enrolled children and tested using an antigen capture enzyme immunoassay. Rotavirus positive samples (156 from pre- and 141 from post-vaccination periods) were further characterized by rotavirus genotyping methods to identify the predominant G and P types circulating during the surveillance era. Following rotavirus vaccine introduction in Ethiopia, a reduction in rotavirus associated hospitalizations was seen in all age groups with the greatest burden in children <12 months of age. A wide variety of rotavirus strains circulated in the pre- and post-vaccine introduction periods.
