US Platform to Measure Influenza Vaccine Effectiveness against Laboratory-confirmed Influenza-associated: Influenza is an important cause of morbidity, mortality, and healthcare burden across all age groups.
Because influenza viruses are constantly changing and vaccines are reformulated every year, annual
estimates of the effectiveness of influenza vaccines in preventing influenza infection and its
associated complications are needed in order to evaluate the protection provided by annual,
nationwide vaccination programs.Each year in the United States, influenza viruses infect up to 20%
of the population and cause thousands of hospitalizations and deaths; influenza-associated
hospitalization rates are highest among older adults, persons ≥ 65 years old. Annual influenza
vaccination is the primary influenza prevention strategy and is recommended for all people ≥ 6
months of age in the U.S. Many studies have described the vaccine effectiveness (VE) of seasonal
and 2009 pandemic influenza vaccine formulations against laboratory-confirmed symptomatic and
medically-attended outpatient influenza illness (Treanor, 2012; Ohmit, 2014). In these and other
outpatient VE studies, older adults were underrepresented and data specific to the ≥ 65 year old age
group were limited. In contrast, hospitalization rates due to influenza are highest for older adults
compared to other age groups. However, published estimates of VE against laboratory-confirmed
influenza-associated hospitalization are uncommon. This funding opportunity announcement seeks
to support the development of a network of research institutions to estimate the annual effectiveness
of influenza vaccination in adult populations to prevent laboratory-confirmed influenza-associated
hospitalizations, especially among older adults.
