Role of schools in the transmission of measles in rural Senegal: implications for measles control in developing countries. (1/862)

Patterns of measles transmission at school and at home were studied in 1995 in a rural area of Senegal with a high level of vaccination coverage. Among 209 case children with a median age of 8 years, there were no deaths, although the case fatality ratio has previously been 6-7% in this area. Forty percent of the case children had been vaccinated against measles; the proportion of vaccinated children was higher among secondary cases (47%) than among index cases (33%) (prevalence ratio = 1.36, 95% confidence interval (CI) 1.04-1.76). Vaccinated index cases may have been less infectious than unvaccinated index cases, since they produced fewer clinical cases among exposed children (relative risk = 0.55, 95% CI 0.29-1.04). The secondary attack rate was lower in the schools than in the homes (relative risk = 0.31, 95% CI 0.20-0.49). The school outbreaks were protracted, with 4-5 generations of cases being seen in the two larger schools. Vaccine efficacy was found to be 57% (95% CI -23 to 85) in the schools and 74% (95% CI 62-82) in the residential compounds. Measles infection resulted in a mean of 3.8 days of absenteeism per case, though this did not appear to have an impact on the children's grades. Among the index cases, 56% of children were probably infected by neighbors in the community, and 7% were probably infected at health centers, 13% outside the community, and 24% in one of the three schools which had outbreaks during the epidemic. However, most of the school-related cases occurred at the beginning and therefore contributed to the general propagation of the epidemic. To prevent school outbreaks, it may be necessary to require vaccination prior to school entry and to revaccinate children in individual schools upon detection of cases of measles. Multidose measles vaccination schedules will be necessary to control measles in developing countries.  (+info)

Seroepidemiological evaluation of 1989-91 mass vaccination campaigns against measles, in Italy. (4/862)

In 1989-91 anti-measles vaccination campaigns were conducted in several Italian regions to vaccinate all children aged between 13 months and 10-12 years without a history of measles or measles vaccination. This study was conducted to evaluate serological status after the mass vaccination campaigns. In 1994, capillary blood samples were collected from randomly selected children, aged 2-14 years, living in 13 local health units. Antibody titres were determined by ELISA. Blood spot samples were analysed for 4114 (75.6%) of 5440 selected children. Among the 835 that reported measles before 1990, 806 (96.5%) were immune and of the 2798 vaccinated, 2665 (95.2%) were immune. The Edmoston-Zagreb (E-Z) strain vaccine was associated with a lower level of immunity than the Schwarz (SW) strain. A history of measles identified almost all immune children. Vaccination with the SW strain conferred persistent immunity (at least 5 years) in 98% of vaccinees. The strategy was able to unite natural and induced immunity.  (+info)

Measles eradication: experience in the Americas. (5/862)

In 1994, the Ministers of Health from the Region of the Americas targeted measles for eradication from the Western Hemisphere by the year 2000. To achieve this goal, the Pan American Health Organization (PAHO) developed an enhanced measles eradication strategy. First, a one-time-only "catch-up" measles vaccination campaign is conducted among children aged 9 months to 14 years. Efforts are then made to vaccinate through routine health services ("keep-up") at least 95% of each newborn cohort at 12 months of age. Finally, to assure high population immunity among preschool-aged children, indiscriminate "follow-up" measles vaccination campaigns are conducted approximately every 4 years. These vaccination activities are accompanied by improvements in measles surveillance, including the laboratory testing of suspected measles cases. The implementation of the PAHO strategy has resulted in a marked reduction in measles incidence in all countries of the Americas. Indeed, in 1996 the all-time regional record low of 2109 measles cases was reported. There was a relative resurgence of measles in 1997 with over 20,000 cases, due to a large measles outbreak among infants, preschool-aged children and young adults in Sao Paulo, Brazil. Contributing factors for this outbreak included: low routine infant vaccination coverage, failure to conduct a "follow-up" campaign, presence of susceptible young adults, and the importation of measles virus, apparently from Europe. PAHO's strategy has been effective in interrupting measles virus circulation. This experience demonstrates that global measles eradication is an achievable goal using currently available measles vaccines.  (+info)

Timing of development of measles-specific immunoglobulin M and G after primary measles vaccination. (6/862)

A standard method for diagnosing measles is to detect measles-specific immunoglobulin M (IgM) in the serum of infected persons. Interpreting a positive IgM result from a person with suspected measles can be difficult if the person has recently received a measles vaccine. We have previously demonstrated that measles-specific IgM may persist for at least 8 weeks after primary vaccination, but it is unknown how quickly IgM appears. This study determined the timing of the rise of measles-specific IgM and IgG after primary measles vaccination with Schwartz vaccine. Two hundred eighty 9-month-old children from Ethiopia presenting for routine measles vaccination were enrolled. Sera were collected before and either 1, 2, 3, or 4 weeks after vaccination and tested for measles-specific antibodies by an IgM capture enzyme immunoassay (EIA) and by an indirect IgG EIA. A total of 209 of the 224 children who returned for the second visit had prevaccination sera that were both IgM and IgG negative. The postvaccination IgM positivity rates for these 209 children were 2% at 1 week, 61% at 2 weeks, 79% at 3 weeks, and 60% at 4 weeks. The postvaccination IgG positivity rates were 0% at 1 week, 14% at 2 weeks, 81% at 3 weeks, and 85% at 4 weeks. We conclude that an IgM-positive result obtained by this antibody capture EIA is difficult to interpret if serum is collected between 8 days and 8 weeks after vaccination; in this situation, the diagnosis of measles should be based on an epidemiologic linkage to a confirmed case or on the detection of wild-type measles virus.  (+info)

Measles: effect of a two-dose vaccination programme in Catalonia, Spain. (7/862)

The study reports incidences of measles in Catalonia, Spain, as detected by surveillance, and analyses the specific characteristics of the outbreaks reported for the period 1986-95. Incidences per 100,000 inhabitants were calculated for the period 1971-95. The following variables were studied: year of presentation, number of cases, median age, transmission setting, cases with a record of vaccination and preventable cases. Associations between variables were determined using odds ratios (OR). The incidence of measles declined from 306.3 cases in 1971 to 30.9 in 1995. A total of 50 outbreaks were investigated. The outbreaks that occurred in the last two years of the study had a higher likelihood of having a transmission setting other than primary school (OR = 3.9); a median case age > 10 years (OR = 7.2); and fewer than 6 cases (OR = 2.3). The characteristics of recent outbreaks, marked by a rise both in transmission outside the primary-school setting and in median age, indicate the need for the introduction of a specific vaccination programme at the end of adolescence in addition to control of school-related outbreaks.  (+info)

Seroconversions in unvaccinated infants: further evidence for subclinical measles from vaccine trials in Niakhar, Senegal. (8/862)

BACKGROUND: Increases in measles antibodies without rash-illnesses have been documented in previously vaccinated children exposed to measles cases. The phenomenon has been incompletely evaluated in young unvaccinated infants with immunity of maternal origin. METHODS: Monthly cohorts of newborns were prospectively randomized to vaccine and placebo control groups during a trial of high-titre vaccines in Niakhar, Senegal. Measles antibodies were assayed in blood samples of enrolled children collected at 5 months old, when controls received a placebo injection, and at 10 months, when the placebo group was given measles vaccine. Intensive prospective surveillance for measles was conducted throughout the trial. RESULTS: One-fifth (n = 53) of the placebo controls seroconverted, with known exposure to a measles case in only three of them. None of the seroconverters developed a measles-like rash. Sixteen-fold or greater increases in titres were noted in about one-quarter of them. Compared with placebo controls who did not seroconvert, seroconverters were more likely to have had exposure to a measles case and to travel, more likely to be boys than girls, and had significantly lower baseline antibody titres. Measles was endemic in the study area throughout the trial. Seroconversions did not adversely effect subsequent nutritional indices or mortality. CONCLUSIONS: Although laboratory errors and inadvertent injection of vaccine rather than placebo may have played some role, they do not fully explain the above observations, which are consistent with subclinical measles in the seroconverters. The possible role of subclinical measles in occult transmission, its potential effect on the type and duration of subsequent immunity, and its impact on response to primary vaccination need to be determined.  (+info)

The measles outbreaks and measles vaccines are a hot topic of debate currently raging in both the mainstream and alternative media. However, it would appear that the mainstream medias reporting on this issue is leaving out some very important facts that for some reason they do not seem to want to report. Given the severity of the issue and the current rhetoric, which includes some in the mainstream media calling for criminal prosecution and incarceration against parents who refuse the measles vaccine, it is very important that all the facts involving the measles vaccine are revealed to the public. Unfortunately, one topic in the discussion about measles vaccines that the mainstream media is completely ignoring is the fact that whistleblowers have come forward to reveal massive fraud connected with the current measles vaccine.

N2 - Background: In settings where measles has been eliminated, vaccine-derived immunity may in theory wane more rapidly due to a lack of immune boosting by circulating measles virus. We aimed to assess whether measles vaccine effectiveness (VE) waned over time, and if so, whether differentially in measles-eliminated and measles-endemic settings. Methods: We performed a systematic literature review of studies that reported VE and time since vaccination with measles-containing vaccine (MCV). We ...
It is given at the age of completed 9 months (270+ days of life). Transplacental maternal anti-measles antibodies persist in the child for as long as 9 months. These antibodies protect the child against measles, hence measles usually occurs after 9 months. Giving vaccines before 9 months may not be very effective due to interference by the maternal antibodies. This rule is not always true. In countries like India, a mother may be malnourished & may not have good titers of anti-measles antibodies. Children born to such mothers can suffer from measles as early as 6 months of life. Hence during epidemics of measles, the vaccine can be given as early as 6 months, but this should be followed by one more measles vaccine at 9 months. In the west, children are given straight MMR at 12-15 months of age. That is due to a lack of measles with mass measles vaccination. In our country, if one waits till 12-15 months many children will develop measles before that. Hence we advise the measles vaccine at 9 ...
Studies on further attenuated live measles vaccine. I. Adaptation of measles virus to the chorioallantoic membrane of chick embryo and clinical tests on the str
Background: All observational studies and a few randomised controlled trials (RCT) suggest that early measles vaccine (MV), in particular an early two-dose strategy, has a much better effect on overall mortality than later MV. These results suggest that MV has a non-measles related beneficial effect on child survival.. Objective: To evaluate in a multi-center RCT the effect on child survival and other health indicators of a two-dose measles vaccination schedule by providing an additional dose of Edmonston-Zagreb (EZ) MV as soon as possible after 4 months of age as well as the standard measles vaccine at 9 months of age. Three trials are planned in Guinea-Bissau, Ghana and Burkina Faso. The investigators will test a 40-43% reduction of mortality at each site separately and a 32% reduction overall. Based on the results from the RCT, the investigators will assess the cost-effectiveness of the intervention.. Design, Burkina Faso: Newborns are followed through the Health and Demographic Surveillance ...
The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recommends that some adults be revaccinated with at least one dose of live attenuated measles vaccine. The recommendation is intended in particular to protect adults who may have received the killed measles vaccine between 1963 and 1967 and was not effective, the CDC says on its website.. But on Monday, Dr. Nancy Messonnier, director of the CDCs National Center for Immunization and Respiratory Diseases, said that most adults should feel reassured that the shot they got as a kid or young adult is still protective.. Most adults are protected against measles. Thats what the science says, Messonnier said. That includes people who were born before measles vaccine was recommended, and even folks who only got a single dose.. The CDC is encouraging that certain adults at high risk talk with their doctors about whether they need a measles booster, Messonnier said. These include international travelers, health care workers, and folks living in ...
Measles was responsible for an estimated 100,000 deaths worldwide in 2008. Despite being a vaccine-preventable disease, measles remains a major cause of morbidity and mortality in young children. Although a safe and effective injectable measles vaccine has been available for over 50 years it has not been possible to achieve the uniformly high levels of coverage (required to achieve measles eradication) in most parts of the developing world. Aerosolised measles vaccines are now under development with the hope of challenging the delivery factors currently limiting the coverage of the existing vaccine. We used a modified CHNRI methodology for setting priorities in health research investments to assess the strengths and weaknesses of this emerging intervention to decrease the burden of childhood pneumonia. This was done in two stages. In Stage I, we systematically reviewed the literature related to emerging aerosol vaccines against measles relevant to several criteria of interest. Although there are a
Id like to throw two numbers at you, but I cant. I only have one to throw. That number is zero. It represents the number of deaths attributed to measles in the United States since 2003.. The second number is the number of deaths attributed to measles vaccines in the US since 2003. I dont have that number because, while the Centers for Disease Control tracks adverse event reports for vaccines, it doesnt make those statistics easy to find or compare.. But heres a sample: In the first five months of 2011, 118 cases of measles were reported in the US. No one died of measles during that period. During the same period, CDC recorded 698 adverse event reports on measles vaccines, including combination vaccines like the Measles/Mumps/Rubella vaccine. Those reports include four deaths, but we cant know if the vaccines actually caused the deaths because these reports are not usually thoroughly investigated.. No, Im not here to regale you with unproven (and probably unprovable) tales of ...
Because of large gaps in measles vaccine coverage across the world, there were an estimated 110,000 measles-related deaths in 2017.
Yes. Because vaccines that are different from each other can be received on the same day on different sites. In fact, one child can receive, 7 shots in his first visit, if there is any doubt that he could return for succeeding visits. 1 day interval for a different kind of vaccine is okay. (Example 1: your baby got measles vaccine 10 days ago, can your baby get another measles shot? Answer1: No, because its the same vaccine, it has to be at least 28 days apart. Example 2: your baby had flu shot 3 days ago, can you give measles vaccine now? Answer 2: Yes, because, its a different vaccine ...
A total of 27% of cases had visited a health facility 7 21 days before prodrome compared with only 6% of neighbourhood controls. As shown in Table 2, after controlling for measles immunization, sex, socioeconomic status, and number of children in the household, the adjusted OR for a health facility visit was 7.0 (95% CI = 4.2 11.6, P , 0.001). There was no significant interaction of age or sex in the association between health facility visit and measles. For the subgroup of severe measles cases, the OR for health facility attendance in this prodromal period was 8.9 (95% CI = 3.6 22.0).. Stratification by immunization status showed that health facility attendance and the presence of more than one child in the household appeared to be greater risk factors for measles in immunized than in non-immunized children. Among the 42 immunized cases with 94 age-matched immunized controls, the OR for health facility attendance was 24.7 (95% CI = 5.3 114.7, P ,0.001) and the OR for more than one child in the ...

Do you need another measles vaccine? If you were born before 1989, its time to get a new measles vaccine. Heres why vaccinations are so important.
The inhalable measles vaccine, developed by a team led by CU-Boulder chemistry and biochemistry Professor Robert Sievers, involves mixing supercritical carbon dioxide with a weakened form of the measles virus. The process produces microscopic bubbles and droplets that are dried to make the inhalable powder, which is dispensed into the mouths of patients using a small, cylindrical plastic sack with an opening like the neck of a plastic water bottle.. According to the World Health Organization, measles is one of the leading causes of death among young children. In 2008 there were an estimated 164,000 measles deaths in children worldwide - nearly 450 deaths a day - and India accounts for about two-thirds of global measles deaths in infants and children. Clinical trials are the next vital step in making this vaccine widely available, he said.. One of our primary goals of this project is to get rid of needles and syringes, because they frighten some people, they hurt, they can transmit diseases ...
From the article: Similar to immunity after natural measles infection, live measles vaccine-induced immunity has been thought to be lifelong. Vaccinees who subsequently develop measles have been considered primary vaccine failures, defined as the failure of the initial vaccination to elicit an appropriate immune response. Primary vaccine failures are believed to be caused by (1) interference by maternal antibody when vaccination occurs at a young age, (2) technical problems, such as improper vaccine storage or administration, or (2) other unknown reasons. Transmission of measles among older children in the United States, most of whom have been appropriately vaccinated, has raised the question of whether waning vaccine-induced immunity may also be responsible for some vaccine failures. Current vaccination policy as well as mathematical models assume that vaccine-induced immunity is life-long. If waning vaccine-induced immunity does occur, changes in measles vaccination strategies might be ...

An epidemiological study of measles-specific immunoglobulin G antibody levels was conducted using a representative sample of a vaccinated suburban population in Sao Paulo State, Brazil. The study aimed to determine immunity status in relation to age and infection or vaccination experience. 549 age-structured samples of sera, collected in 1990, were screened and calibrated to the international reference serum, using measles nucleoprotein in an enzyme immunoassay. In the age group with direct experience of vaccination (9 months to 15 years), whether routine or campaign, over 90% had detectable antibody greater than or equal to 50 miu/mL. However, 14% of these had antibody concentrations between 50 and 100 miu/mL and 30% between 50 and 255 miu/mL. In those over 15 years of age, 94% had antibody levels ,255 miu/mL, assumed to be the result of past infection. The study suggested that, within highly vaccinated populations, a proportion of individuals had measles antibody levels which may be ...
A debate over vaccinations is raging among South Florida parents after reports that measles outbreak at Disney land was spread by people who have not received the measles vaccine.
Do I need a booster dose of the measles vaccine? People who are fully immunized do not need a booster dose of the MMR vaccine, but it is important to understand whether or not you are really fully immunized to see if you need a second dose. Some adults who are not high risk are considered fully vaccinated with only one dose, while others should have two doses. Are you at high risk to get measles? Do you travel, live in an area where there are measles outbreaks, go to college, or work as a health care professional ...
We thank Bustreo, Okwo-Bele, and Kamara for a comprehensive overview of the impressive achievements by the Global Alliance for Vaccines and Immunization on reducing child mortality world wide by providing vaccines[1]. With regard to measles vaccine, the authors note that child mortality in Niger was almost halved from 1998 to 2009, and measles vaccination contributed to this achievement. They refer to a Lives Saved Tool[2]-based estimate of 5% of the lives saved due to measles vaccines[3]. They add that This impact is in addition to the non-specific effects (vaccines acting independently of other vaccines) of measles vaccination, which when provided with vitamin A or followed by DTP3 vaccination within a specified administration schedule can contribute to further mortality reduction from diseases other than measles. We agree that the remarkable reductions in child morality can also be attributed to the non-specific effects of measles vaccine - effects, which are not yet incorporated into the ...
Following the RTS,S malaria vaccine, which showed only partial protection with short-term memory, there is strong support to develop second-generation malaria vaccines that yield higher efficacy with longer duration. The use of replicating viral vectors to deliver subunit vaccines is of great interest due to their capacity to induce efficient cellular immune responses and long-term memory. The measles vaccine virus offers an efficient and safe live viral vector that could easily be implemented in the field. Here, we produced recombinant measles viruses (rMV) expressing malaria gold standard circumsporozoïte antigen (CS) of Plasmodium berghei (Pb) and Plasmodium falciparum (Pf) to test proof of concept of this delivery strategy. Immunization with rMV expressing PbCS or PfCS induced high antibody responses in mice that did not decrease for at least 22 weeks post-prime, as well as rapid development of cellular immune responses. The observed long-term memory response is key for development of ...
Global Measles Vaccine Market Professional Survey Research Report 2020-2028 includes market share, market research report, market trade, market prices, market geography trend and market forecast
Dr Vicky Sheppeard, Director Communicable Diseases NSW Health, said the case also frequently used inner west train services and took a return journey on buses between Town Hall and Baulkham Hills on Thursday 2 February whilst unknowingly infectious.. Measles is highly contagious and is spread in the air through coughing or sneezing by someone who is unwell with the disease, Dr Sheppeard said.. This latest case highlights the importance of getting vaccinated to protect against the disease. A highly effective measles vaccine has been freely available for many years and it is vital for everyone, including adults and children, to have two doses of the measles vaccine during their life time.. Those people who have not received two doses of measles vaccine are at particular risk of contracting the disease and should be alert to symptoms in the coming days and weeks.. Symptoms of measles include fever, sore eyes and a cough followed three or four days later by a red, blotchy rash spreading from ...
Massive measles vaccination campaign launches in Guinea - AP News: DAKAR, Senegal (AP) - Doctors Without Borders says it is .12/10/2017 20:19:44PM EST.
Background: Supplementary immunization activity (SIA) campaigns provide children with an additional dose of measles vaccine and deliver other interventions, including vitamin A supplements, deworming medications, and oral polio vaccines.. Objective: To assess the cost-effectiveness of the full SIA delivery platform in South Africa (SA).. Design: We used an epidemiologic cost model to estimate the cost-effectiveness of the 2010 SIA campaign. We used province-level campaign data sourced from the District Health Information System, SA, and from planning records of provincial coordinators of the Expanded Programme on Immunization. The data included the number of children immunized with measles and polio vaccines, the number of children given vitamin A supplements and Albendazole tablets, and costs.. Results: The campaign cost $37 million and averted a total of 1,150 deaths (95% uncertainty range: 990-1,360)- This ranged from 380 deaths averted in KwaZulu-Natal to 20 deaths averted in the Northern ...
Excerpt 1) new measles vaccine on high-titer shots that are up to 500 times more potent than standard measles vaccines.(11) In the early 1980s, they tested one of these - the Edmonston-Zagreb (EZ-HT) strain - on Mexican and Gambian babies 4 to 6 months old.(12-15) During the next few years this high-titer measles vaccine was also tested on babies in Guinea-Bissau, Togo, Senegal, Haiti, and impoverished minority communities in Los Angeles, California.(16-22). Excerpt 2) Children who received the Schwartz strain (SW-HT) died of other diseases at a rate 51% higher than children who received a standard vaccine. There were 48 excess deaths for every 1000 babies vaccinated. Children who received the Edmonston-Zagreb strain (EZ-HT) died of other diseases at a rate 80% higher than children who received a standard vaccine. There were 75 excess deaths for every 1000 babies vaccinated.(17) Mortality remained consistently high in the second and third year after the EZ-HT vaccine was administered, whereas ...
The U.S. is in the middle of the worst outbreak of measles since the disease was eradicated from the country in 2000. But while the majority of victims are children whose parents decided not to vaccinate them or people who have chosen to go unvaccinated, even some people who got the measles vaccine as children might still be at real risk, depending on their age.
This article was originally published in The Times of Israel.With almost no measles in the United States since the 1990s, todays generation of American parents are not familiar with the disease and buy in too easily to the anti-vaccination movement currently in vogue, said measles vaccine developer Dr. Samuel Katz.
The measles have made a comeback in Europe, so if youre planning to watch your team play in the World Cup in Russia, make sure to get the measles vaccine.
This article, published in Vaccine, reports on the development of a heat-stable measles vaccine powder using a combination of unique stabilizers and mild spray-drying process conditions. The researchers identified spray drying as the optimal processing method for the preparation of dried vaccine, as it generally resulted in negligible process loss and comparable, if not better, storage stability compared to other processes. Key stabilizers identified during the formulation screening processes were L-arginine, human serum albumin, and a combination of divalent cations. ABSTRACT ONLY.

No significant progress has been achieved in the palliative treatment of sarcomas in recent years. Therefore, novel therapies are urgently needed.. In this study, we used a novel measles vaccine virus armed with a suicide gene (MeV-SCD) to infect eight sarcoma cell lines representing seven different sarcoma types. Five cell lines proved to be susceptible to MeV-mediated oncolysis in the absence of the prodrug 5-FC. Three cell lines showed a primary resistance to MeV-mediated oncolysis (MOI of 1), defined by a remnant tumor cell mass of ,50% at 4 days postinfection (dpi). Fortunately, this primary resistance could be overcome in two cell lines by the addition of 5-FC and a 10-fold increase in the applied virus dosage.. When aiming at unraveling the mechanisms of the phenomenon of primary resistance to MeV-mediated oncolysis, we first found that primary rates of MeV infection were lower in the resistant sarcoma cell lines than in the permissive cell lines. In addition, we were able to demonstrate ...

The situation is sickening. The pharmaceutical industry and accomplices are using the Olympics to promote vaccines. The promotion is, true to style, based on greed, lies and deception.. When we search in google under for example: olympics measles vaccine - we get many links showing that there is worldwide propaganda scaring people who travel to UK about measles epidemics, telling them that they may catch measles and that they may infect others. To avoid people being unduly worried about the MMR vaccine, notice the deceptive way of describing the MMR vaccine by calling it the measles vaccine. Measles vaccine to many sounds less dangerous than MMR. If the promoters shout out loud that the vaccine is for measles, mumps and rubella and then try to scare people just about measles epidemics then many will question why they should get a vaccine for all three diseases if there is an epidemic just for measles.The promoters reckon,and probably this is the case that thousands of people will not do ...
Children receiving measles-containing vaccines at 12-15 months of age have a lower increased risk of fever and seizures than those who receive them at 16-23 months of age, according to a study.. The CDC recommends a two-dose series of measles-containing vaccines, with the first dose administered at 12-15 months and the second dose at 4-6 years. Most children receive the first dose of a measles-containing vaccine between the ages of 12 and 23 months, with about 85% receiving it by 19 months, according to background information in a news release.. The research, published Oct. 14 on the website of JAMA Pediatrics, found receiving the first dose by 15 months might be safer.. We found that the magnitude of increased risk of fever and seizures following immunization with measles-containing vaccines during the second year of life depends on age, the study s lead author, Ali Rowhani-Rahbar, MD, MPH, PhD, of the Kaiser Permanente Vaccine Study Center in Oakland, Calif., said in the news release..

Before 1969, there was no national vaccination campaign against measles in New Zealand and almost everyone caught the disease as children as it is so infectious. Those who have recovered from the disease are almost always immune, so it is very rare to see any measles in people born in New Zealand before 1969. Measles vaccine was available in some other countries before 1969 so some adults who were born overseas may have received a measles vaccine. It is not therefore generally recommended that people over 50 years be vaccinated with MMR vaccine. People with concerns about whether they are immune are being asked to talk to their general practice or contact the Immunisation Advisory Centre (0800 IMMUNE ...
