Table 3 Short-term disutility weights of pneumococcal diseases

From: Cost-effectiveness analysis of a universal mass vaccination program with a PHiD-CV 2+1 schedule in Malaysia

  Disutility weight Reference/assumptions Rangea% PSA distribution
Meningitis (inpatient) 0.023 [44] value for meningitis with recovery ±50 Beta (α = 7.70, β = 324.15)
Bacteremia (inpatient) 0.008 [44] value for hospitalization ±50 Beta (α = 6.46, β = 811.13)
Pneumonia (inpatient) 0.008 Assumed to be the same as for inpatient bacteremia ±50 Beta (α = 6.62, β = 821.25)
Pneumonia (outpatient) 0.006 [44] value for local infection ±50 Beta (α = 3.73, β = 618.18)
AOM (outpatient) 0.005 [45] ±50 Triangular
AOM (hospitalized myringotomy) 0.005 Assumed to be the same as for AOM (outpatient) ±50 Triangular
