Early estimates of 2014/15 seasonal influenza vaccine effectiveness in preventing influenza-like illness in general practice using the screening method in France

Abstract

The ongoing influenza epidemic is characterized by intense activity with most influenza infections due to the A(H3N2) viruses. Using the screening method, mid-season vaccine effectiveness (VE) in preventing influenza-like illness in primary care was estimated to 32% (95% CI; 23 to 40) among risk groups and was 11% (95% CI; -4 to 23) among the elderly (≥65 years). The VE in ≥65 y was the lowest estimate regarding the 4 previous seasonal influenza epidemics.
