Preventing Infectious Disease Outbreaks in Residential Aged Care – Lecture
In this Healthed lecture, Prof Raina MacIntyre, Professor of Global Biosecurity at the Kirby Institute in Sydney, and leading expert on immunisation outlines the range of vaccinations currently available for older Australians, both those that are free and those which cost. In addition, she takes us through the risk versus benefit analysis for each of the available vaccines, including those that involve cost to the patient, which provides a valuable framework for conversations that GPs are likely to have with their elderly patients or their carers.
