  • My PhD project is conducted as a collaboration project between Karolinska
    Institutet and the Public Health Agency of Sweden. Associate professor Anna
    Nilsson [1] is my main supervisor and my co-supervisors are PhD
    epidemiologist Malin Kark and associate professor Adam Roth [2] The
    project aims at:
    * validating the Swedish Vaccination Register
    * determining socioeconomic and medical risk factors for incomplete and
    untimely vaccination among Swedish infants
    * evaluating what effect incomplete or untimely vaccination will have on
    infectious disease morbidity in a high-coverage setting.
    *Publications related to my PhD project: *

    completeness of register data [3]
