Abstract:

The Armed Forces Health Surveillance Center AFHSC, Naval Health Research Center NHRC and United States Air Force School of Aerospace Medicine USAFSAM conduct annual mid-season influenza vaccine effectiveness VE analyses for the Department of Defense DoD. As each organization conducts influenza surveillance on different populations, their analyses provide a unique opportunity to assess influenza VE among service members, dependents and civilians. This report describes the findings for the middle of the 2012-2013 influenza season.
