Nordic network On Non-Specific Effects of vaccines and childhood morbidity

MMR revac ITS article
Revaccination with measles-mumps-rubella vaccine did not affect how many children were hospitalized for infections in Sweden and Denmark
In a previous study of Danish children, revaccination with measles,-mumps, and-rubella (MMR) vaccine was associated with reduction in hospitalization for infections other than measles, mumps, and rubella that last 2 days or more. We tested if we could see this effect at the population level in Denmark and Sweden, but it was not possible.
