Seasonal influenza vaccine effectiveness estimates: Development of a parsimonious case test negative model using a causal approach

Lane, Courtney; Carville, Kylie Sandover; Kelly, Heath; Pierse, Nevil

Description

Background: Influenza vaccine effectiveness (VE) is increasingly estimated using the case-test negative study design. Cases have a symptom complex consistent with influenza and test positive for influenza, while non-cases have the same symptom complex but test negative. We aimed to determine a parsimonious logistic regression model for this study design when applied to patients in the community. Methods: To determine the minimum covariate set required, we used a previously published...[Show more]
