Economic consequences to society of pandemic H1N1 influenza 2009: preliminary results for Sweden
2009 (English)In: Eurosurveillance, ISSN 1025-496X, Vol. 14, no 37, 19333- p.Article in journal (Refereed) Published
Experiments using a microsimulation platform show that vaccination against pandemic H1N1 influenza is highly cost-effective. Swedish society may reduce the costs of pandemic by about SEK 2.5 billion (approximately EUR 250 million) if at least 60 per cent of the population is vaccinated, even if costs related to death cases are excluded. The cost reduction primarily results from reduced absenteeism. These results are preliminary and based on comprehensive assumptions about the infectiousness and morbidity of the pandemic, which are uncertain in the current situation.
