Infectious Disease: Vaccine-Preventable Diseases

The Vaccine-Preventable Diseases (VPD) Subcommittee was formed from the Adult and Child Immunization Subcommittees and other activities as a result of members’ interest in VPD topics. The subcommittee will expand upon topics discussed at this brainstorming session during future VPD Subcommittee calls. The subcommittee will hold monthly conference calls to discuss vaccine-preventable disease-related issues.


Resources:
Human Papillomavirus (HPV)
Over the past year, CSTE has worked with the National Foundation for Infectious Diseases (NFID) to promote HPV vaccination through partnerships. The project involved an environmental scan of existing resources, a virtual roundtable with participation from several stakeholder organizations, and the development of a call-to-action document, which includes recommendations for achieving greater HPV vaccine coverage. The HPV Resource Center was created to provide information for healthcare professionals and epidemiologists to help increase HPV vaccination rates among adolescents.
Measles
The Ohio Department of Health (ODH) Office of Public Affairs has developed materials in response to the state's measles outbreak. One is specific to the community that has been most affected by this outbreak, and the others are more general. ODH has also produced 15- and 30-second public service announcements that have run on radio stations across the state. Public information officers in other states can contact the ODH Office of Public Affairs at (614) 644-8562 with any questions about the messaging and public information outreach activities that Ohio has been conducting.
