    Epidemics 13:1-9. 2015
    ..Our results demonstrate the importance of between-season variability in influenza transmission and our estimates are in line with the classification of influenza seasons according to intensity and vaccine matching. ..

    Nele Goeyvaerts
    Interuniversity Institute for Biostatistics and Statistical Bioinformatics, Hasselt University, Agoralaan 1 Gebouw D, B3590, Diepenbeek, Belgium
    Stat Med 31:1432-49. 2012
    ..For both Belgium and Ireland, all models reveal that the vaccination coverage achieved during the first 15 years since the introduction of measles, mumps, and rubella immunization is insufficient to eliminate measles...

    Nele Goeyvaerts
    Interuniversity Institute for Biostatistics and Statistical Bioinformatics, Hasselt University, Diepenbeek, Belgium
    Biostatistics 12:283-302. 2011
    ..When prevaccination serological data are available, the framework developed in this paper could prove worthwhile to investigate these different scenarios for other infections as well, such as cytomegalovirus...
