flumist live virus vaccine recently approved for influenza
FluMist: live virus vaccine recently approved for influenza
  • Temperature adapted influenza vaccine made.
    • This is the first live virus influenza vaccine and should be available this fall, for age 5-50.
      • First dose in peds 5-8 years, give two doses 6 wks apart. Prevention of spread is the idea.
      • Healthy adults age 8-49 should get one dose.
      • Each dose has 3 influenza strains rec by the USPHS for the 2003-4 season.
        • Efficacy was 87% in children in 30,000 pts during the trials.
        • For older adults, the inactivacted vaccine looked better.

do your patients know they should see a physician before travel
Do your patients know they should see a physician before travel?
  • Worries about diseases during or after travel?
    • 1 million people travel between developed and developing countries each week.
    • 60-70% chance each will develop a health complaint related to travel.

      • 40% had not sought medical advice.
          • IDN July 2003
what diseases of travel should you consider in such patients
Flying problems with motion sickness



Food & beverages




Sleeping sickness

Malaria prophylaxis

Traveler’s diarrhea

Problems with meds and prophylaxis

Insurance overseas

Return of bodies to the US

What diseases of travel should you consider in such patients?
worry about eating when you are traveling not protected by vaccines
At home.

Chicken, turkey, and other meats.

Contamination with Campylobacter, occasionally with Salmonella.

Wash the cutting boards.

Hands after touching it.

Food left at room temperature esp overnight to serve later.

Eating out.

Same as at home plus…

*Hepatitis A




Eat only foods that are served hot.

No ice, no leafy, no fruit unless you peel it yourself. (*typhoid)

Worry about eating when you are traveling: (not protected by vaccines)
hepatitis a vaccination has reduced rates of hepatitis a
Hepatitis A vaccination has reduced rates of hepatitis A
  • Hepatitis - 85% of kids infected have no sx.
    • Case fatality is 3/1000 overall, more in older.
    • 10% of people with HAV relapse to Sx & infective
  • Kids traveling account for most of 10% Hep A
    • U.S. born children returning to Mexico with parents to the villages of birth is a big risk factor.
  • States with mandated HepA vaccine
    • 83% decline in hepatitis A, especially in kids.
          • IDN July 2003
hepatitis a b c
Hepatitis A

*Fresh food fussed over with fecaled fingers.

Food, water, *feces, *urine transmission.

Zoo transmission.

Military example.

No therapy.

Prevention: vaccine, 2 doses. Gammaglobulin.

Hepatitis B

Blood, needles, sexual transmission.

Vaccine 3 doses for full protection. Therapy.

Hepatitis C

Blood transmission.

Cocaine straws are biggest risk.

No vaccine. Therapy - depression for a year.

more on flumist
More on FluMist
  • The vaccine made by crossing
    • a master donor strain with wild virulent strains
      • to give the desired hemagglutinins and neuraminadase.
    • Grown in chickens.
    • Temp sensitive allows growth in nose but not the lower respiratory tract.
      • Avoid giving to immune suppressed, or those with chronic medical problems who might get disease.
        • Probably protects against some strains not in the vaccine too unlike the inactivated vaccines.
immunizations and the illnesses they prevent staying healthy
Immunizations and the illnesses they prevent: staying healthy
  • Influenza A or B.
      • Fever, runny nose, muscle aching, sore throat, cough.
    • Who should take the influenza (inactivated) vaccine?
      • Those with other illnesses: heart, lung, diabetes.
    • Who should use the live virus FluMist?
      • Ages 5-49. Temperature sensitive strain.
    • Are there rapid diagnostic tests and therapies if someone doesn’t take it in time?
        • Relenza & Tamiflu, amantadine & rimantadine.
pneumovax the pneumonia shot
Pneumovax (the pneumonia shot)
  • Of the dozens of causes of pneumonia, this is the most lethal. The first 7 days are critical.
  • Symptoms are cough, pleurisy, sputum, high fever, aching.
    • Deaths more often in under age 5 and over 60.
      • Vaccine for kids has 7 types. For adults 23 types.
        • Both are inactive, not live organisms.
    • Diabetes, other illnesses as for influenza.

  • Twinrix (hepatitis A&B) approved.
          • IDC 14:1, 2001
vaccine use questioned
Vaccine use questioned
  • The concern as each disease is decreased in frequency:
      • Should we keep immunizing for a rare disease?
      • Number of adverse problems equals diseased.
      • Common concerns today (some valid, some not):
        • Influenza vaccine: Guillain Barre Syndrome.
        • DPT: seizures & brain damage.
        • DPT: linked to autism (IOM found no evidence)
        • OPV believed to be too risky to use routinely.
        • MMR: Wakefield & regressive autism + lymphoid nodular hyperplasia.
        • Thimerosal and CNS development.
special concerns eipv mmr
Special concerns: eIPV & MMR
  • Enhanced inactivated polio vaccine
      • Anaphylaxis to neomycin, streptomycin, or polymyxin B has been reported.
      • Precaution in pregnancy.
      • No data to support reducing eIPV to 3 doses.
  • MMR (live viral components)
      • Neomycin or gelatin anaphylaxis
      • Pregnancy: avoid
      • Immunodeficiency: avoid
      • Precautions: Recent IG, decreased platelet counts, history of purpura from low platelets.
college students get meningitis

Meningococcal vaccine now suggested for college

College students getmeningitis
  • 23 year-old woman, K-State student

Found comatose in her apartment.

In February the student had URI

5 days later, she had myalgia, arthralgia

The next day, nausea, vomiting, headache. Spoke to her mother on the phone.

She didn’t answer phone, so parents went to Manhattan and found her.

She was stuporous on arrival in the emergency department.

meningococcal vaccines
Meningococcal vaccines
  • Epidemiology changing
    • 1998-99, 88 cases and 8 deaths in college students among 2,300 US cases
      • Increase in vaccine-preventable cases
      • Now inform students & parents re:
        • disease & quadrivalent ACYW135 for dormitory entering freshman.
        • No group B vaccine available (1/3 cases)
        • Repeat dose in 3-5 yrs if freshman/dorms.
      • To prevent most cases, immunize starting at 17 y/o.
          • CID 2000;30:648, MMWR 2000:49(RR07):1-10, JAMA 1999;281, 1906.
contraindication to immunization
Contraindication to immunization
  • Hypersensitivity to components: read labeling!
    • Most common are egg proteins (MMR, Influenza, yellow fever)
      • If patient can eat egg containing foods, it’s OK.
    • Antibiotics: neomycin (MMR), streptomycin, thiomerosol
  • Congenital immunodeficiency
    • Avoid oral polio vaccine (patient or family)
    • MMR not shed (only patient avoid)
  • Systemic prednisone may alter response
febrile illness and vaccination
Febrile illness and vaccination
  • All vaccines can be administered to persons with minor illness such as diarrhea,URI with or without low-grade fever, or other low-grade febrile illness
  • Minor illness will not affect the seroconversion rate of vaccines
  • Persons with moderate or severe febrile illness should be vaccinated as soon as they have recovered from the acute phase of the illness
real problems with immunizations
Real problems with Immunizations
  • Contents of vaccines
    • Presence of thiomerisol
      • Large amounts of mercury exposure

large study of 2 of us peds
Large study of 2% of US peds
  • HMO study of children <age 7 years
    • No association between MMR and IBD or autism.
      • But children who had MMR after 18 months had a reduced incidence of IBD, called a protective effect.
      • (Beware the association here too)
        • Recall the child who drove up with his parents to his burning house.
          • The child wanted to know why the firemen had set his house on fire.
