*  National, Regional, State, and Selected Local Area Vaccination Coverage Among Adolescents Aged 13-17 Years - United States, 2014
From 2013 to 2014, vaccination coverage among adolescents aged 13-17 years increased for all vaccines routinely recommended for adolescents. Achieving high HPV vaccination coverage in early adolescence is important to optimize protection before HPV exposure. In 2014, the President's Cancer Panel Report called for coordinated efforts to improve HPV vaccination coverage, including reducing missed opportunities to recommend and administer HPV vaccine at every clinical opportunity, increasing parents' and adolescents' acceptance of HPV vaccine, and maximizing access to HPV vaccination services (4).. After experiencing no progress in national HPV vaccination coverage among females aged 13-17 years from 2011 to 2012, coverage increased modestly in 2013, and an additional 3.3 percentage points in 2014 (3,5). Five states, DC, and one local area experienced large, significant increases in ≥1- or ≥3-dose HPV vaccination coverage among females, including four (Chicago, DC, Georgia, and Utah) of the 11 ...

*  Underimmunization Among Children: Effects of Vaccine Safety Concerns on Immunization Status | ELECTRONIC ARTICLES | Pediatrics
Our study documents that attitudes, beliefs, and behaviors indicative of vaccine safety concern contribute substantially to underimmunization in the United States. Moreover, although concerns were significantly more common among parents of underimmunized children, many parents of fully immunized children expressed similar attitudes and beliefs, suggesting potential risks to the currently high vaccine coverage levels.. Our data also document that socioeconomic, family, and health care factors are key contributors for the majority of children who are not up to date for ≥2 of the 3 focus vaccines. Similar to our study, associations between poverty and vaccination status were identified in several studies.13-15 In addition, we found that having a larger number of children in the household and having ≥2 providers were significantly and independently associated with case status. These factors were also important in other studies. A study of 13-month-old children in a regional health maintenance ...

*  Active Surveillance for Adverse Events: The Experience of the Vaccine Safety Datalink Project | Vaccine-Safety System and...
On the basis of computerized International Classification of Diseases, Ninth Revision codes, 5 apparent cases of GBS generated a signal after vaccination with MCV4. Each of the GBS cases had been reviewed after its appearance, and none represented a true instance of new onset of GBS symptoms during the observation window of days 1 through 42. Two were instances of follow-up for preexisting GBS; 1 had not been diagnosed with GBS but rather with a different neurologic syndrome that did not meet our case definition; 1 was an instance of rule-out of a differential diagnosis of GBS; and 1 had symptom onset on day 0 and, thus, was not considered plausibly related to vaccination.. In summary, the reasons for the 10 signals fell into 1 of 7 categories: (1) a confirmed vaccine-safety problem (MMRV-seizure); (2) temporal changes in incidence or coding (possibly the second RotaTeq gastrointestinal bleeding signal); (3) other confounding (by age: the first RotaTeq-gastrointestinal bleeding signal); (4) ...

*  Safety of Influenza A (H1N1) 2009 Monovalent Vaccines --- United States, October 1--November 24, 2009
The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) licensed the first 2009 influenza A (H1N1) monovalent vaccines ("H1N1 vaccines") on September 15, 2009 (1). The H1N1 vaccines are available as a live, attenuated monovalent vaccine (LAMV) for intranasal administration and as monovalent, inactivated, split-virus or subunit vaccines for injection (MIV). The licensure and manufacturing processes for the monovalent H1N1 vaccines were the same as those used for seasonal trivalent inactivated (TIV) or trivalent live, attenuated influenza vaccine (LAIV); none of these vaccines contains an adjuvant (1). Vaccine safety monitoring is an important component of all vaccination programs. To assess the safety profile of H1N1 vaccines in the United States, CDC reviewed vaccine safety results for the H1N1 vaccines from 3,783 reports received through the U.S. Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System ...

Although most parents place a lot of trust in their child(ren)'s physician,7 the proportion of parents who trust non-health professional sources for such information should not be discounted.8 Many non-health professional sources, increasingly celebrities, have taken it on themselves to play the role of experts regarding vaccine safety. These people have raised or propagated concerns regarding vaccines, usually on the basis of their personal perceptions and experiences, that often contradict health officials' and physicians' messages regarding vaccine safety. The results of our study reveal that 26% of parents placed at least some trust regarding vaccine-safety information with celebrities and 73% placed at least some trust in parents who believe that their child was harmed by a vaccine. Even if only a fraction of these parents receive, believe, and act on potential misinformation provided by such sources, there may be an adverse impact on immunization rates, the risk of vaccine-preventable ...

*  Parental Vaccine Safety Concerns in 2009 | Articles | Pediatrics
Among the most important findings from our study is that almost 1 (12%) in every 8 parents has refused at least 1 vaccine recommended by their children's physician. The reasons for these refusals were often vaccine specific; parents may have more concerns regarding 1 vaccine than another. Newer vaccines (varicella, meningococcal conjugate, and HPV) were more likely to be refused than older vaccines (MMR), despite safety concerns expressed by many parents regarding vaccination in general. Parents also had varying perspectives on the effectiveness of individual vaccines and the diseases that they were targeted to prevent.. One current specific immunization safety concern has been the spurious association of vaccines with autism. Although peer-reviewed original scientific research and multiple expert committees that have reviewed all available data on this issue have failed to show any association between vaccines and autism, ...

*  Vaccine-preventable diseases - Wikipedia
A vaccine-preventable disease is an infectious disease for which an effective preventive vaccine exists. If a person acquires a vaccine-preventable disease and dies from it, the death is considered a vaccine-preventable death. The most common and serious vaccine-preventable diseases tracked by the World Health Organization (WHO) are: diphtheria, Haemophilus influenzae serotype b infection, hepatitis B, measles, meningitis, mumps, pertussis, poliomyelitis, rubella, tetanus, tuberculosis, and yellow fever. The WHO reports licensed vaccines being available to prevent, or contribute to the prevention and control of, 25 vaccine-preventable infections. In 2012, the World Health Organization estimated that vaccination prevents 2.5 million deaths each year. If there is 100% immunization, and 100% efficacy of the vaccines, one out of seven deaths among young children could be prevented, mostly in developing countries, making this an important global health issue. Four diseases were ...

"Vaccines are a type of 'unavoidably unsafe' product; that is, a vaccine is a product that is incapable of being made safe for its intended and ordinary use … The Court takes as true the premise that vaccines are unavoidably unsafe. Since the government mandates the use of an unavoidably unsafe product, it is reasonable to believe that some people will be injured by it.

Dr. Puliyel is a distinguished member of the AHRP Honors Roll. WHO ADVISED TO REVISE ITS POST-VACCINATION PHILOSOPHY New Delhi 4 July 2017.. Two leading doctors have urged the World Health Organization (WHO) to urgently revise its new methodology to classify adverse events following immunization (AEFI).. Jacob Puliyel, a pediatrician and member of the National Technical Advisory Group on Immunization, and Anant Phadke, an executive member of the All India Drug Action Network argue that WHO's methodology does not address children's safety.. According to the authors, WHO's new classification of AEFI, in essence, implies that no death can result from vaccination and, if any death does occur, it is only coincidental and not due to the vaccine.. Only reactions that have been previously acknowledged in epidemiological studies can be considered as vaccine related in the new scheme. All deaths seen in large post marketing phase are simply labeled as coincidental or unclassifiable deaths. They cannot be ...

Our data demonstrate that a single dose of a DNA vaccine or a purified inactivated virus vaccine provides complete protection against the ZIKV challenge in mice," said senior author Dan H. Barouch, adding "Importantly, we showed that vaccine-induced antibodies provided protection, similar to existing vaccines for other flaviviruses.". The researchers tested two vaccine candidates: a DNA vaccine developed in the Barouch laboratory at BIDMC, and a purified inactivated virus vaccine developed at WRAIR. The DNA vaccine used gene sequences from a ZIKV strain from Brazil to elicit immune responses.. Four weeks following vaccination, mice were exposed to the Brazilian strain of ZIKV, which had previously been shown to cause defects in fetal mice similar to those observed in ZIKV infected humans. All vaccinated mice were protected from ZIKV replication. Other mice were vaccinated and exposed to infection eight weeks later and were also protected from infection.. Barouch noted that the effectiveness ...

Vaccines are an important part of your dog's health but knowing which vaccines your dog needs can be a little confusing. The best source of advice for what vaccines your dog needs is your veterinarian who knows your dog's unique health history. Things like dog breed, age, and the region in which you live will influence what vaccines your dog needs to stay healthy and prevent illness and disease. Vaccines should not be over-administered, though, because it increases the risk of adverse reactions in your dog. For this reason, it is important to educate yourself about what vaccines may be necessary for your dog so that you can make an informed decision about what vaccines your dog really needs. There are vaccines that are considered "core vaccines" - vaccines that are necessary for all dogs, and "non-core vaccines" - ...

*  Towards Rational Vaccine Design
The immune system recognizes vaccine agents as foreign, destroys them, and "remembers" them. When the virulent version of an agent comes along, the immune system is thus prepared to respond. This long term immunity relies heavily upon the generation of so called B cells, which will generate antibodies that will bind to pathogens and mark them for destruction. Specifically, almost all vaccine formulations induce two types of B-cells: memory B cells and antibody producing B-cells called plasma cells. Adjuvants, agents which modify the effect of other agents while having few, if any direct effects when given by themselves, are many times used to modify (in this case augment) the effects that a vaccine has on disease resistance. However, the reasons why certain vaccine adjuvants are more or less effective at inducing immune responses often remains unclear.. "This article provides a very exciting new insight because it seems to change the traditional textbook paradigm on relationship between plasma ...

Although an improved vaccine is now used in the USA and the UK, the scientists say their study provides insight into why vaccines to combat serious childhood infections can eventually fail.. The research was funded by the Wellcome Trust and is published in the journal Nature Genetics.. Infections with pneumococcus bacteria (Streptococcus pneumoniae) are thought to kill around a million young children worldwide each year, though the success of vaccination programmes has led to a dramatic fall in the number of cases in countries such as the UK and US..
