Updated estimation of the impact of a Japanese encephalitis immunization program with live, attenuated SA 14-14-2 vaccine in Nepal

In this impact analysis, Nicole P. Lindsey and colleagues describe the impact of the Japanese encephalitis immunization program implemented in Nepal during 2006 through 2011, reporting an incidence rate of 0.7 cases per 100,000 person-years, a 78% decrease compared to the estimated incidence rate without the program.
