PubMed Commons is an experimental system of commenting on PubMed abstracts, introduced in October 2013. Comments are displayed on the abstract page, but during the initial closed pilot, only registered users can read or post comments. Any researcher who is listed as an author of an article indexed by PubMed is entitled to participate in the pilot. If you would like to participate and need an invitation, please email, giving the PubMed ID of an article on which you are an author. For more information, see the PubMed Commons FAQ.

This is in reference to the following sentence on page 14, right column: "HCWs�� perceptions of vaccines and of vaccine preventable diseases may be different in developing countries because they face different disease burdens, and this is the reason why these studies were not included [35,36]." I would like to point out that in the study you cited (No. 36: Schaetti C et al., PLoS ONE 2012;7(7):e41527) we did not study health care workers' perceptions in Zanzibar; we interviewed the general community instead.
