    A NITAG for Sweden

    06.06.2016

    The first meeting of the Swedish reference group in May 2016 marks the birth of the Swedish NITAG. Until 2015, Sweden was among the 11 countries that did not declare having a NITAG in the WHO-UNICEF Joint Reporting Form. This is no longer the case.

This context challenges the implementation of ring vaccination based on the identification of contacts and contacts of contacts, as recommended by SAGE in April 2017 and confirmed by SAGE during its April 2019 meeting. Further, a potential vaccine shortage may manifest in case the outbreak expands further and/or is prolonged.
