The @WHO has approved the first #malaria vaccine after years of testing and hopes are high that it will save many #children's lives globally. MCRI & @UniMelb Prof @MulhollandKim speaks with @dwnews to discuss this fantastic breakthrough.
A child dies from #malaria every two minutes. One death is one too many. 🚨 Today, WHO recommends RTS,S, a groundbreaking malaria vaccine, to reduce child illness & deaths in areas with moderate and high malaria transmission bit.ly/3iEa4hd #VaccinesWork

The transition #backtoschool is likely to be challenging for some children, given the long absence from #school. MCRI A/Prof @DanchinMargie & @RCHMelbourne @DrAntheaRhodes answer questions from #students & provide #parents with advice on how to support #children post-lockdown.
The staged return to school brings with it joy, but also anxiety about what happens next with Delta in the community and younger children unvaccinated. Students have questions of their own, so we put them to Victoria's leading experts on kids and #COVID19. @alicialoxley #9News

A cell-based #influenza vaccine has effectively provided protection against the #flu in #children & adolescents, acc. to a new study. It found the #vaccine produced a sufficient #immune response in kids across 3 flu seasons & all 8 participating countries. mcri.edu.au/news/cell-based-…

Prof Terry Nolan from MCRI & @TheDohertyInst said because cell-based #influenza #vaccines were designed to produce an exact match to the @WHO’s selected influenza strains they could potentially provide greater #vaccine effectiveness than egg-based vaccines.
