||Vaccination against Japanese encephalitis by an industrial physician
||Pratique de la vaccination contre l'encéphalite japonaise en médecine du travail [in French]|
||Oct. 1996, Vol.57, No.6, p.454-457. 5 ref.
||Japanese encephalitis, a disease transmitted by mosquito bite, is endemic in many countries of South-East Asia. The disease may be fatal or have severe neurological after-effects. The vaccine against it has not yet received marketing authorization in France. It is now however possible to obtain temporary authorization from the French Agency for the evaluation of medicinal products. The author, who is an industrial physician practising in France, has thus been able to vaccinate seven workers, who were to work as expatriates in China for a period of several months. The results of an inquiry on the needs of industrial physicians in a French region concerning vaccination against Japanese encephalitis are presented.
