"Universal Tool for Vaccine Scheduling: Applications for Children and Adults"

To improve coverage against vaccine-preventable diseases for children and adults, and to aid caretakers and providers in making vaccination decisions appropriately and in a timely manner, Georgia Institute of Technology in collaboration with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) developed decision support tools for creating optimized catch-up immunization schedules for four target groups: children through age 6, adolescents ages 7 through 18, and adults ages 19+ in the U.S., and children and adolescents through age 19 in Canada. The catch-up scheduling problem for each targeted group is one of determining the best schedule (in terms of coverage) for each individual given their past vaccination history and current age.
