  • Learn how vaccine administration is different from routine EMS care
  • Learn to administer H1N1 vaccine
    • Live, attenuated intranasal vaccine
    • Inactivated intramuscular vaccine
how vaccines work
How Vaccines Work
  • Vaccines “trick” the body
    • Antigens
  • Human body fights the antigen
    • Antibodies
  • Antibodies specific to the antigen
  • Ideally produce life-long protection
    • Sometimes boosters needed
    • Flu is different every year (mutations)
types of vaccines
Types of Vaccines
  • Live, attenuated
  • Inactivated
live attenuated
Live, attenuated
  • Contains live, but weakened virus
  • The H1N1 vaccine is intranasal
    • But some are shots
  • Weakened
    • Replicate in body only a dozen times compared to thousands in real disease
    • May cause mild illness, usually limited to nose
    • Rarely transmit to others
inactivated
Inactivated
  • Virus is killed
  • Antigens from virus present
  • Cannot cause infection
  • H1N1 inactivated vaccine is IM injection only
