- Vaccine Safety
- Vaccine Acceptance/Refusal
- Population-based Surveillance for Influenza
Current Research Projects:
- Vaccine Refusal: Clinical Impact and Parental Attitudes (5/15/07 - 4/30/12, Principal Investigator): This is a five year project to determine the risks of pertussis and varicella infection among children of parents who refuse recommended immunizations. The project will also examine the knowledge attitudes and beliefs of providers and parents who either accept or refuse immunizations for their children. This data will be used to assess the feasibility of implementing an intervention designed to address vaccine refusal in the Kaiser system.
- Vaccine Safety Datalink: Comprehensive Link Data Collection of Medical Events and Immunization (9/01/02 – 8/31/12, Co-Investigator): The Vaccine Safety Datalink is a national, multi-site project to study the safety of child and adult immunizations.
