WHO makes vaccine reccomendations

An advisory group to WHO, Strategic Advisory Group of Experts (SAGE) on Immunization, met last week on recommendations related to vaccine for the pandemic (H1N1).

The groups recommendations included:

Health-care workers should be the first priority for vaccine
2. Because there will be limited vaccine availability, vaccine makers should consider using adjuvants
3. Since there will be limited evaluations of vaccine effectiveness and safety prior to use, countries should prioritize sharing this information so changes to the vaccine can be made rapidly.
