Comparing influenza vaccine efficacy against mismatched and matched strains: a systematic review and meta-analysis

Tricco AC, Chit A, Soobiah C, Hallett D, Meier G, Chen MH, Tashkandi M, Bauch CT, Loeb M. Comparing influenza vaccine efficacy against mismatched and matched strains: a systematic review and meta-analysis. BMC Med. 2013;11:153. DOI: 10.1186/1741-7015-11-153.

Impact:

  • Our results can help public health officials anticipate the possible infection and complications from influenza during mismatched years.
  • Estimates of protection for mismatched influenza seasons can be used by patients who are contemplating immunization, since the LAIV and TIV have been shown to offer benefit during matched seasons, as well as mismatched seasons.
