3114.0 Vaccine preventable disease epidemiology

Monday, November 8, 2010: 10:30 AM - 12:00 PM
This interesting session will focus on the epidemiology of vaccine preventable diseases, including epidemiological methods, vaccination coverage and intent to vaccinate. Human papillomavirus (HPV) will be the subject of four presentations and the fifth will focus on hepatitis B.
Session Objectives: At the conclusion of this session, the learner (participant) will be able to: 1) Explain how an agent-based model can be used to assess the risks related to vaccine refusals and vaccine hesitancy; 2) To identify correlates of HPV vaccine acceptance among a convenience sample of young men; and 3) Describe disparities in HPV vaccine series completion within Florida Medicaid and CHIP.
