Childhood Immunization Schedule

CDC Pink Book

why teach about immunizing agents in pharmacy
Why Teach about immunizing agents in Pharmacy?
  • Important health care issue
  • Pharmacists can play a role with education
    • Efficacy
    • Vaccine controversies
    • Changing recommendations
    • Misinformation
    • Patient compliance
    • New vaccines
why immunize
Why immunize?
  • It is effective
    • The widespread use of vaccines has reduced the peak-level of incidence in the US by ≥95%
    • Immunizing also indirectly protects other people such as infants or those with contraindications
  • It saves lives
    • Ex. Measles
    • Before 1963 there were >500,000 cases/yr and

400-500 deaths/yr

Now, ~85 cases/yr

why immunize5
Why immunize?
    • Diseases still with us

Measles outbreak in 1989-1991

there were >55,000 cases and 132 deaths

  • It saves money
    • Measles outbreak -> 44,000 days of hospitalization
    • $3-4 million in direct medical treatment costs per 1000 cases
    • $3000-$4000/person
  • You may be administering vaccines
vaccines are different
Vaccines are different
  • Compounds are not drugs until they are approved by a regulatory agency
  • Vaccines have a low rate of market entrance
  • It is expensive and difficult to get them to market
vaccines are different7
Vaccines are different
  • Why?
    • Drugs go to a small number of sick people
    • Vaccines are administered to millions of healthy people

Higher safety expectations

Fear of lawsuits

national childhood vaccine injury act
National Childhood Vaccine Injury Act
  • Passed in 1986
  • Goal: Protect manufacturers of vaccines
  • No-fault alternative to the tort system for resolving claims resulting from adverse reactions to particular vaccines
  • Assumed that vaccine is responsible, which is very hard to prove in court
slide9
This act requires 2 things of those who administer vaccines
    • Maintain permanent vaccination records
      • Vaccination histroy, date, vaccine manufacturer, lot number, name, adverse reactions
    • Report certain adverse effects to the Vaccine Adverse Events Reporting System (VAERS)
slide10
Frist Bill
    • Reform to vaccine injury compensation program
    • Law to apply to individual components…mercury
    • Later, new provisions to protect health care workers with respect to smallpox vaccine administration
for act
$ for act
  • Excise tax

$0.75 - $3.00 per vaccine

All childhood vaccines carry this tax

Fund paid out ~$50,000,000 in 1998

$116,000,000 was taken in that year

other legal issues
Other legal issues:
  • There have been many lawsuits filed against physicians and hospitals for failure to immunize
  • All were due to ignorance usually involving either new vaccines or new guidelines
examples
Examples:
  • Hepatitis B carrier gives birth

after delivery baby did not get HBIG nor HepB vaccine. Infant became a chronic carrier

  • Hib. Child developed Hib disease which led to brain damage. Parents had tried to get the vaccine but told no because the doctor didn’t know about it.
missed opportunity
Missed Opportunity

A healthcare encounter in which a person is eligible to receive vaccination but is not vaccinated completely

reasons for missed opportunities
Reasons for Missed Opportunities
  • Lack of simultaneous administration
  • Unaware child needs additional vaccines
  • Invalid contraindications
  • Inappropriate clinic policies
  • Reimbursement deficiencies
reduction to barriers to immunization
Reduction to Barriers to Immunization
  • Physical barriers
    • waiting time
    • distance
  • Psychological barriers
    • unpleasant experience
    • safety concerns
    • misinformation
importance of vaccine safety
Importance of Vaccine Safety
  • Decreases in disease risks and increased attention on vaccine risks
  • Public confidence in vaccine safety is critical
    • higher standard of safety is expected of vaccines
    • vaccinees generally healthy (vs. ill for drugs)
    • lower risk tolerance = need to search for rare reactions
    • vaccination universally recommended and mandated
importance of vaccine safety18
Importance of Vaccine Safety
  • Ongoing safety monitoring needed for the development of sound policies and recommendations
prelicensure human studies
Prelicensure Human Studies
  • Phases I, II, III trials
  • Common reactions are identified
  • Vaccines are tested in thousands of persons before being licensed and allowed on the market
postlicensure surveillance
Postlicensure Surveillance
  • Identify rare reactions
  • Monitor increases in known reactions
  • Identify risk factors for reactions
  • Identify vaccine lots with unusual rates or types of events
  • Identify signals
postlicensure vaccine safety activities
Postlicensure Vaccine Safety Activities
  • Phase IV Trials
    • ~10,000 participants
    • better but still limited
  • Large-Linked Databases
  • Clinical Immunization Safety Assessment Network
vaccine adverse event reporting system vaers
Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System (VAERS)
  • National reporting system
  • Jointly administered by CDC and FDA
  • Passive (depends on healthcare providers and others to report)
  • Receives ~15,000 reports per year
vaccine safety datalink vsd
Vaccine Safety Datalink (VSD)
  • Large-linked database
  • Links vaccination and health records
  • “Active surveillance”
    • 8 HMOs
    • ~2% of the U.S. population
  • Powerful tool for monitoring vaccine safety
the provider s role
The Provider’s Role
  • Immunization providers can help to ensure the safety and efficacy of vaccines through proper:
    • vaccine storage and administration
    • timing and spacing of vaccine doses
    • observation of contraindications and precautions
the provider s role26
The Provider’s Role
  • Immunization providers can help to ensure the safety and efficacy of vaccines through proper:
    • management of vaccine side effects
    • reporting of suspected side effects to VAERS
    • vaccine benefit and risk communication
benefit and risk communication
Benefit and Risk Communication
  • Opportunities for questions should be provided before each vaccination
  • Vaccine Information Statements (VISs)
    • must be provided before each dose of vaccine
    • public and private providers
    • available in multiple languages
