Institute of Medicine to assess Efficacy of Alternative Vaccine Schedule for Children
It has been announced by the Institute of Medicine, an independent organization responsible for providing recommendations to doctors and general public that it is going to assess the feasibility of a novel research taken out on children's alternate vaccine schedule.
The announcement was made through teleconference in which the organization said that the vaccine schedule they have been assessing is recommended by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).
While talking about the main work to perform in the task, the IOM said that they have to assess both pros and cons of the alternate vaccine schedule. Vaccines meant for children are always a sensitive case and it is important for them to look at the same with similar point of view.
The IOM said that there are families, which do not follow the recommendations of the CDC's Vaccination programme. Rather, they choose to go with alternative medicine schedule and here the chances arise of health risk for children.
"We have gathered information on public perspectives on the issue and have reviewed the scientific literature on safety [of various vaccine schedules]", said IOM committee chair Ada Sue Henshaw. Till now, they have not found any side effect in the current medicine guideline, but they will continue to assess the same.
