  1. Age-specific incidence of chickenpox.

    Article - En anglais

    Because licensure of a chickenpox (varicella) vaccine is likely soon, it is important to ascertain the age-specific incidence of chickenpox.

    Increasing vaccine coverage and a resulting decrease in transmission may result in an accumulation of susceptible adults, followed by a shift of incidence into those older age groups in future years.

    Valid baseline age-specific incidence will make it possible to detect this phenomenon.

    Two studies were conducted in Kentuchy to assess age-specific incidence of chickenpox.
