A Clearer View of Vaccines for Women and Men

About (English version): 

One factor rarely gets mentioned in discussions about vaccines: the differences in how males and females react to them. Yet Sabra Klein, assistant professor in the W. Harry Feinstone Department of Molecular Microbiology and Immunology (MMI), says understanding those differences can improve vaccine distribution. In the May issue of The Lancet Infectious Diseases, Klein, PhD, MS, MA, Andrew Pekosz, PhD, and others examine the impact of male-female differences in responding to viral vaccines, from yellow fever and measles to hepatitis.
