Neither the planners of this session nor I have any financial relationship with pharmaceutical companies, biomedical device manufacturers, or corporations whose products and services are related to the vaccines we discuss. There is no commercial support being received for this event. The mention of specific brands of vaccines in this presentation is for the purpose of providing education and does not constitute endorsement. The GA Immunization Office utilizes ACIP recommendations as the basis for this presentation and for our guidelines, policies, and recommendations.

For certain vaccines this may represent a slight departure from or off-label use of the vaccine package insert guidelines.

2013 Footnote Changes Influenza vaccine the abbreviation IIV for inactivated influenza vaccine and drops the abbreviation TIV for trivalent inactivated vaccine (TIV). Tdap and Td vaccines - is updated to include the recommendation to vaccinate pregnant women with Tdap during each pregnancy, regardless of the interval since prior Td/Tdap vaccination. MMR vaccine - Footnote was modified to reflect the new recommendation that a provider diagnosis of measles, is no longer considered acceptable evidence of immunity to measles. Pneumococcal vaccines: Pneumococcal polysaccharide (PPSV23) vaccine and PPSV23 revaccination footnotes clarification. Pneumococcal conjugate 13-valent (PCV13) vaccine - A new footnote was added for PCV13 vaccine. Hepatitis A vaccine - Footnote was updated to clarify that vaccination is

recommended for persons with a history of noninjection illicit drug use in addition to those with injection drug use. 2013 Footnote Changes Contraindications Table Changes The inactivated influenza vaccine precautions were updated to indicate that persons who experience only hives with exposure to eggs should receive IIV rather than LAIV. Pregnancy was removed as a precaution for hepatitis A vaccine. This is an inactivated vaccine, and similar to hepatitis B vaccines, is recommended if another high risk condition or other indication is present. Language was clarified regarding the precaution for use of antiviral medications and vaccination with varicella or zoster vaccines.

MMWR / August 17, 2012 / Vol. 61 / No. 32 How well does the flu shot work? 70%-90% effective among healthy persons younger than 65 years of age For persons older than 65 yrs 50%-60% effective in preventing hospitalization 80% effective in preventing death Inactivated Influenza Vaccines and Egg Sensitivity

All influenza vaccine viruses for the 2012-2013 season are grown in hens eggs Allergy to eggs must be distinguished from allergy to influenza vaccine Frequently Asked Questions Some of my patients refuse influenza vaccination because they insist they "got the flu" after receiving the injectable vaccine in the past. What can I tell them? How long does immunity from influenza last? In which month is it too late to receive influenza vaccine? My patient came in last February and asked

for a flu shot. Should I have given it to her? Can you get the flu from the flu shot??? NO!!! NO!!! NO!!! Flu vaccine in the shot is made from killed bits and pieces on influenza virus Some people get a little soreness or redness where they get the shot It goes away in a day or two Serious problems from the flu shot are very rare I got the flu shot and still got the flu For healthy persons takes about 2 weeks

after the shot before your body makes enough antibodies to be protected You are vulnerable to flu infection during this time Flu vaccination does not protect you from colds, sinus infections, and other respiratory illnesses that also circulate during flu season Flu Season Can begin as early as October and last through Spring In GA, Flu usually peaks midFebruary Best to get vaccinated before flu season starts December March is Not Too Late to get

a Flu Vaccination Pneumococcal Disease Pneumococcal infection may cause pneumonia, bacteremia, meningitis and otitis media resulting in thousands of hospitalizations and deaths each year in the United States As many as 175,000 hospitalizations from pneumococcal pneumonia are estimated to occur annually in the United States. Common bacterial complication of influenza

Pneumococcal Polysaccharide Vaccine for Adults (PPSV23) Part one Recommended for all persons with the following: Age 65 years and older without history of PPSV23 vaccine Adults who smoke cigarettes Adults less than 65 years with: Chronic lung disease (including asthma) Chronic cardiovascular disease Chronic liver disease End stage renal disease, kidney failure, hemodialysis Diabetes mellitus

Immunocompromising conditions Anatomic/functional a-splenia Alcoholism Cochlear implants Ref: Recommended Adult Immunization Schedule United States , 2012 MMWR Vol. 61/ No. 4/ February 3, 2012 Pneumococcal Polysaccharide Vaccine for Adults (PPSV23) Part two A one time revaccination 5 years after the first dose is recommended for those with: chronic renal failure functional/anatomic asplenia immunocompromising conditions Individuals who received PPSV23 before age 65 years should

Ref: Recommended Adult Immunization Schedule United States , 2012 MMWR Vol. 61/ No. 4/ February 3, 2012 Pneumococcal Polysaccharide Vaccine (PPSV23) My patient doesnt have a record of receiving PPSV23, but she believes she may have had it in the past. What should I do? Persons with uncertain or unknown vaccination status should be vaccinated. If I give PPSV23 to my patient now, must I wait a month before giving influenza vaccine or Td or Tdap vaccine?

Inactivated influenza vaccine and Td or Tdap may be given at the same time as or at any time before or after a dose of PPSV23. There are no minimum interval requirements between the doses of these or any other inactivated vaccines. NE Pneumococcal Conjugate Vaccine (PCV13) W Licensed for adults 50 years and older for: Prevention of pneumonia and invasive disease caused by Streptococcus pneumoniae serotypes 1, 3, 4, 5, 6A, 6B, 7F, 9V, 14, 18C, 19A, 19F and 23F.

Indication is based on immune responses elicited by Prevnar 13. No controlled trials available in adults demonstrating a decrease in pneumococcal pneumonia or invasive disease after immunization. ACIP has made a recommendation for use of PCV13 in adults 19 years and older with immunocompromising conditions, functional or anatomic asplenia, CSF leaks or cochlear implants.

Granoff DM, et al. In: Vaccines. 2004: 959. Yes Adult Recommendations for Tetanus, Diphtheria, and Pertussis vaccine (Tdap) A single dose of Tdap is recommended for All adults aged 19 years and older who have not yet

received a dose of Tdap Td should be administered: As a booster dose every 10 years for persons who have already received 1 dose of Tdap Updated Recommendations for Use of (Tdap) Vaccine Use Tdap regardless of interval since the last tetanus- or diphtheria-toxoid containing vaccine Use Tdap in under-vaccinated

children aged 7 through 10 years. Tdap and Pregnancy June 2011 ACIP votes to recommend Tdap for women > 20 weeks pregnant Tdap and Pregnancy On October 24, 2012, the ACIP voted to recommend tetanus toxoid, reduced diphtheria toxoid and acellular pertussis vaccine (Tdap) for pregnant women with every pregnancy irrespective of previous Tdap history.

Use of Tdap in Special Situations Wound management---1 time dose Tdap History of Pertussis---1 time dose Adults 65 years of age---1 time dose Hepatitis B Hepatitis B Transmission: 1.

Highly contagious viral diseases Respiratory transmission Most cases imported from outside the U.S. Congenital Rubella Syndrome Required for college entrance Measles, Mumps, & Rubella Vaccine Recommendations

Measles, Mumps, & Rubella vaccines are usually given as the combination MMR vaccine 0.5 mL given subcutaneously First dose should be given after 1st birthday

If two doses are needed, doses should be administered at least 28 days apart Egg Allergy is NOT a contraindication! Measles, Mumps, and Rubella Vaccine Recommendations Adults born in 1957 or later, if not previously vaccinated, need one dose All women of child bearing age who do not have evidence of rubella immunity need one dose -- Advise to avoid getting pregnant for 28 days after receiving MMR High Risk groups needing 2 doses:

exposed persons; those vaccinated with killed or unknown type of vaccine; health care workers; students; and international Evidence of Immunity Recommendations for Public Health Employees Document immune status of each employee for all vaccine preventable diseases Strongly encourage employees born prior to 1957 who lack evidence of immunity to mumps to be vaccinated

with two doses of MMR vaccine. Spacing of Live Virus Vaccines and Other Products PPD and live virus vaccine Apply PPD at same visit as MMR If MMR given first, delay PPD 4 weeks or longer Apply PPD first, then give MMR when skin test read Spacing with antibody-containing products such as immune globulin (IG) Varicella

Virus is a member of the herpes group Primary infection results in chickenpox Recurrent infection results in shingles Risk of death due to complications from chickenpox is 25 times greater for adults than children The Recommended Schedule For Varicella Vaccine Varicella vaccination is also recommended in these situations: A 2nd dose catch-up is recommended for all children,

adolescents and adults who have had 1 dose. Some HIV-infected children should receive 2 doses of single antigen varicella vaccine spaced at least 3 months apart. Do not use MMRV. Postpartum vaccination of 2 doses for women whose prenatal assessment indicated susceptibility During outbreak, 2nd dose should be given to those who have received only 1 dose, provided the minimal interval has elapsed. Evidence of Varicella Immunity Documentation of age-appropriate vaccination: Preschool-aged children > 12 months: 1 dose School-aged children, adolescents and adults: 2 doses

Laboratory evidence of immunity or laboratory confirmation of disease Born in US before 1980 A healthcare provider diagnosis of varicella or healthcare provider verification of history of varicella disease. For mild or atypical case: Assessment by physician is recommended to determine:

Epidemiological link to typical case Laboratory evidence of immunity if titer done at time of disease History of herpes zoster based on healthcare provider diagnosis Herpes Zoster Shingles Shingles is caused by reactivation of varicella zoster

Herpes Zoster (Shingles) vaccine Zostavax One dose recommended for adults 60 years and older, including those who have experienced previous episodes of shingles On March 24, 2011 FDA approved Zostavax for use in ages 50-59 years(ACIP has not made a recommendation for this age group) Burden of Shingles Varicella zoster remains dormant in anyone who has had chickenpox Virus reactivates and travels pathway along nerves to skin Results in skin rash/blisters and pain due to inflamed nerves *Ref: Epidemiology and Prevention of Vaccine-Preventable Diseases. 12th Edition, May 2011.

Persons with occupational risk Persons with chronic liver disease Hepatitis A Vaccine International Travel The first dose of hepatitis A vaccine should be administered as soon as travel is considered For healthy persons 40 years of age or younger: 1 dose of single-antigen vaccine administered at any time before departure Persons at risk of severe disease from hepatitis A virus planning to travel in 2 weeks or sooner should receive the first dose of vaccine

and also can be administered immune globulin Hepatitis A Post-Exposure Prophylaxis In 2007, ACIP recommended that people age 1 - 40 years recently exposed to HAV, who have not received hepatitis A vaccine previously, should receive hepatitis A vaccine as a preference to receipt of immune globulin. The vaccine should be given as soon as possible after exposure to hepatitis A, but within 14 days of exposure. Hepatitis A Vaccine Formerly, the most common type of hepatitis reported in the US

Transmitted through fecal-oral route with viral replication in the liver Common modes of infection Person-to-person Contaminated food or water Hepatitis A Vaccine Recommendations Persons who travel to high risk areas outside the US People with high risk conditions

Clotting disorders Street drug use Men who have sex with men People with chronic liver disease including Hep B & C Persons who live in communities with high rates of Hepatitis A In certain circumstances, the vaccine can now be used for post-exposure prophylaxis instead of IG for persons 12 months-40 years of age.

Board of Regents requirements Meningococcal Revaccination Recommendations High-risk persons who should be revaccinated with Meningococcal vaccine:

persistent complement component deficiency anatomic or functional asplenia HIV infection frequent travelers to or persons living in areas with high rates of meningococcal disease Rabies Vaccine Recommendations Post-exposure prophylaxis can be considered for persons who were in the same room as the bat and who might be unaware that a bite or direct contact had occurred (e.g., a sleeping person

awakens to find a bat in the room or an adult witnesses a bat in the room with a previously unattended child, mentally disabled person, or intoxicated person) and rabies cannot be ruled out by testing the bat. Postexposure prophylaxis would not be warranted for other household members. Human Papillomavirus (HPV) Disease Burden Anogenital HPV is the most common sexually transmitted infection in the US Estimated 20 million currently infected 6.2 million new infections/year American Cancer Society estimates 3,870 cervical cancer death annually

Common among adolescents and young adults Estimated 80% of sexually active women will have been infected by age 50 Infection also common in men Human Papillomavirus (HPV) More than 100 different types of HPV. Certain types cause cervical squamous cell cancer, cervical adenocarcinoma, vulvar and vaginal cancer, and genital warts. Type 16 and 18 Women

Typhoid Polio Georgia Registry of Immunization Transactions and Services (GRITS) A Birth to Death Immunization Registry Providers administering vaccines in Georgia must provide appropriate information to GRITS. GRITS personnel can work with your EHR/EMR

vendor to create an interface between your system and GRITS that will drastically decrease data entry time for your practice. Contact the GRITS Training Coordinator at 1-888-223-8644 or e-mail [email protected] Introduction to GRITS GRITS is Mandated by Official Code Annotated, 31-12-3.1 April 8, 1996 passed as a Childhood Registry July 1, 2004 passed as a Birth to Death Registry Mandates reporting by all providers of immunizations to all Georgians.

HIPAA compliant Introduction to GRITS The Benefits of a Statewide Immunization Registry Reduced missed opportunities to vaccinate at risk individuals Reduction of over immunization of individuals Accurate Vaccine Inventory Tracking by Lot # for privately and public funded vaccine Challenges to Adult Vaccination Most patients indicate that they are likely to

receive a vaccination if their healthcare provider (you) recommends it. Ref: Johnson DR, et al. Am J Med. 2008;121 (7 Suppl 2):S28-S35. Challenges to Adult Vaccination Healthcare Provider Perceptions Side Effects Lack of insurance coverage Lack of knowledge about disease prevention Patient reasons

Doctor hasnt told me I need it Not knowing when to get it The belief that a healthy person doesnt need it Financial concerns were not a deterrent for most Most patients indicate that they are likely to receive a vaccination if their healthcare provider (you)

recommends it Ref: Johnson DR, et al. Am J Med. 2008;121 (7 Suppl 2):S28-S35. Why do we miss opportunities to immunize? Provider or patient unaware of the need Visits for mild illness, injury, or follow-up Need for multiple vaccines Invalid contraindications

Invalid Contraindications to Vaccine Mild illness or injury Antibiotic therapy Disease exposure or convalescence Pregnant woman in household Family history of

an adverse event to a vaccine Breastfeeding Prematurity Allergies to products not in vaccine Need for TB skin testing Need for multiple vaccines Ref: General Recommendations on Immunization MMWR 2011; 60 (No. RR-2) January 28, 2011

Vaccine Risk Perception Many young adults are not familiar with vaccinepreventable diseases and perceive the risks of a vaccine outweighs the benefit Concerns Belief that healthy adults do not need vaccines Vaccines have side effects (adverse reactions) Immunity from the disease is better than immunity from a vaccine Immune system overload Vaccines cause autism I cant afford to pay for the vaccine Persons can get vaccinated even if

They have a mild illness (e.g., diarrhea or minor upper respiratory tract illnesses) They are taking antibiotics They live with someone who is pregnant They are breastfeeding an infant or live with someone who is breastfeeding Important Office Practices Use Reminders Electronic health record pop-ups or chart reminders Send patient reminders

Recall Recall for routine immunizations Recall when vaccine is available after a vaccine shortage Talking with Patients about Vaccines Inform that more vaccines are now available for adults Make your recommendation about vaccines Use language patients can understand Give Vaccine Information Statement (VIS) prior to administering a vaccine Solicit and welcome questions Draw upon your experience as a health care

provider for those who are hesitant about receiving a vaccine Adapted from Glen Nowak, PhD. CDC Every Office and Clinic Needs A Vaccine Champion! Lead your immunization team. Educate all staff about new vaccines and recommendations. Teach new staff about vaccine storage, handling, & administration. Initiate processes to improve immunization rates in your practice/facility. Assure immunizations of all staff are up-todate.

Healthcare Workers Need These Immunizations Annual influenza vaccine Tdap or Td Hepatitis B (exposure risk) Validate immune status of: Varicella Measles, Mumps & Rubella (MMR) Are YOU up to date? Other Considerations for HCW Immunization Plan/Policy Immunization/immunity record maintained by the facility on each HCW

Catch-up programs for current employees and policies for newly-hired workers Work restriction policies for susceptible workers after exposure Management and control of outbreaks Options for refusal of vaccination by employees Set an example Flu and Pertussis might not be severe in healthy adults, but can be DEADLY for infants or those with underlying medical conditions Dont transmit disease to your patients-- get a Tdap and annual

Take away messages Georgia has low pneumonia immunization and flu immunization rates for persons 65 yrs and older Flu vaccination efforts should continue into Spring and later! Administer PPSV23 vaccine YEAR ROUND instead of only during flu season to unvaccinated: Unvaccinated persons 65yrs and older DIABETICS over 19 yrs of age Persons over 19 yrs with asthma Take away messages Historically, Georgia has high rates of hepatitis B

infection so strongly encourage hepatitis vaccination for your family planning and STD clients Strongly Encourage Tdap to all adults age 19 years and older Routinely administer HPV vaccine to adolescent females AND males Questions??? Georgia Immunization Office
