        Looking at your child’s immunization schedule can be confusing to parents and some may question whether they are even necessary. Especially when controversies arise about vaccines and autism. It made mom Rebecca Jones think twice. “I did when that information originally came out, but I tend to be the kind of person that wants to double check and I learned quickly that that had been discredited.” The study that made the claim was falsified, but parents may still have fears about the safety of immunizations. Dr. Nancy Witham suggests you sit down with your pediatrician. “I think what people don’t understand is how much we as physicians also are concerned about possible reactions to vaccines, possible side effects from vaccines, possible links to other things such as autism.” Vaccines are well tested before being put in public use. There’s also meticulous testing to ensure that shots given in a group are safe taken in combination. “That piece of information should make it a little bit more comfortable to go through with the schedule as its been written out versus feeling like oh gosh I need to space them to be kinder to my child,” says Dr. Witham. What is more serious, she tells parents, is to skip the shots and risk getting the illness. “I think its important because the diseases are so dramatically disastrous for the children if they get the worst case scenario,” says Dr. Witham. After millions of parents chose to forgo or delay the MMR vaccine, it showed up as an increase in related illnesses. “Many of them are making resurgence we have cases of measles that have been national notified about,” says Dr. Witham. So the best medicine is to understand the information and make an educated decision. “I really believe in trusting your doctor and I do believe in immunizing so I didn’t have any trouble with following that information,” says Jones.

            On June 13, 2011 the GAVI Alliance convened its inaugural pledging conference in London and succeeded in raising a record $4.3 billion. At the meeting, the U.S. announced its first ever multi-year commitment totaling $450 million. These new pledges will support a dramatic expansion of vaccine delivery in GAVI eligible countries. What challenges lie ahead in terms of managing these increased resources and continuing to expand vaccine coverage in an increasingly complex context? What makes GAVI a smart investment for its donors? How does GAVI support the goals of the U.S. Global Health Initiative? Panelists will include: U.S. delegation member Amie Batson, USAID Deputy Assistant Administrator for Global Health; Joelle Tanguy, Managing Director of External Relations for GAVI; Nicole Bates, Senior Program Officer for the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation; and Claire Moran, Development Counsellor at the British Embassy.

                If you think immunizations are kids stuff, then think again. Doctors say grownups need them too. “Certainly everyone over 40 as part of the questions that you bring to your physician, “which immunizations should I have as part of my wellness exam?” says Dr. Sal Lacagnina, vice president of health and wellness for Lee Memorial Health System. In particular, older adults should get an annual flu shot. This illness is highly contagious and can cause significant problems including hospitalization and death, says Dr. Lacagnina. It’s extremely important for people with asthma, diabetes and compromised immune systems. You should also have a pneumonia vaccine as you get older; certainly above the age of 65, says Dr. Lacagnina. The vaccine doesn’t prevent pneumonia, but lessens the chance of serious complications such as infections. Another shot to consider is the T-Dap, which is Tentanus, Dipheria and Pertussis. “Pertussis is a disease that’s on the rise right now, whooping cough, and so most adults may need a shot for that also” says Dr. Lacagnina. A lesser known shot is the shingles vaccine. In clinical trials it reduced the risk of shingles by 50%. A single dose is recommended for adults 60 and older. Together these make up a proper preventative plan.
