Epidemiological evaluation of vaccines: efficacy, safety and policy

News
Anthony Scott and Stefan Flasche run an intensive 2-week course on The Epidemiological Evaluation of Vaccines at LSHTM.  In 2018, the course will run from 2rd to 13th July. Although there are several courses in vaccinology, few are aimed at advanced epidemiological tools for vaccine evaluation. This course fills that gap, providing an understanding of the methods used in the evaluation of vaccines from early clinical trials through to assessment of population impact, modelling, cost-effectiveness analysis, safety surveillance and policy. It aims to tackle issues in high, middle and low income countries.
