CDC publishes report on the 2014–15 influenza season and composition of the 2015–16 influenza vaccine

CDC published Influenza Activity—United States, 2014–15 Season and Composition of the 2015–16 Influenza Vaccine in the June 5 issue of MMWR (pages 583–590). The first paragraph and the paragraph about the composition of the 2015–16 vaccine are reprinted below.

During the 2014–15 influenza season in the United States, influenza activity increased through late November and December before peaking in late December. Influenza A (H3N2) viruses predominated, and the prevalence of influenza B viruses increased late in the season. This influenza season, similar to previous influenza A (H3N2)-predominant seasons, was moderately severe with overall high levels of outpatient illness and influenza-associated hospitalization, especially for adults aged ≥65 years. The majority of circulating influenza A (H3N2) viruses were different from the influenza A (H3N2) component of the 2014–15 Northern Hemisphere seasonal vaccines, and the predominance of these drifted viruses resulted in reduced vaccine effectiveness. This report summarizes influenza activity in the United States during the 2014–15 influenza season (September 28, 2014–May 23, 2015) and reports the recommendations for the components of the 2015–16 Northern Hemisphere influenza vaccine...

Composition of the 2015–16 Influenza Vaccine
The Food and Drug Administration's Vaccines and Related Biological Products Advisory Committee has recommended that the 2015–16 influenza trivalent vaccines used in the United States contain an A/California/7/2009 (H1N1)pdm09-like virus, an A/Switzerland/9715293/2013 (H3N2)-like virus, and a B/Phuket/3073/2013-like (B/Yamagata lineage) virus. It is recommended that quadrivalent vaccines, which have two influenza B viruses, contain the viruses recommended for the trivalent vaccines, as well as a B/Brisbane/60/2008-like (B/Victoria lineage) virus. This represents a change in the influenza A (H3) and influenza B (Yamagata lineage) components compared with the composition of the 2014–15 influenza vaccine. These vaccine recommendations were based on several factors, including global influenza virologic and epidemiologic surveillance, genetic characterization, antigenic characterization, antiviral resistance, and the candidate vaccine viruses that are available for production.

Every Last Child documentary examines the current polio crisis in Pakistan amidst the murders of polio vaccination workers 

Every Last Child is an important new documentary that opened in New York City on June 3, and will open in Los Angeles and Chicago on June 12, and Washington, DC, and San Diego on June 19. The film examines the current polio crisis in Pakistan. Here is a description of the film from the distributor:

EVERY LAST CHILD is the dramatic story of five people impacted by the current polio crisis in Pakistan. Taking place on the front line of the fight against the disease, it is a story of sacrifice, fearless determination, and sorrow in the face of mistrust, cynicism, and violence.

Just a few years ago, polio persisted in only three countries and the number of victims was steadily decreasing. Pakistan was the key battleground with over 80% of all endemic cases. However, when the Pakistan Taliban issued a ban against the polio vaccination program, and incited fatal attacks against vaccinators, Pakistan’s campaign was thrown into disarray. Today families and healthcare workers find themselves in the cross hairs of politics and bloodshed as they attempt to protect their children from polio. At this critical time, when we are closer than ever before to global eradication, increased international support and commitment can see the end of polio, once and for all.

Through the vivid stories of its five subjects—a medical specialist, a vaccinator, a vaccination skeptic, an adult polio victim, and a sick child—we are drawn in to the desperate search for a solution to this devastating disease. Will these everyday heroes succeed and end polio in our lifetime, or will another young generation be at risk?


The American distributor, Zeitgeist Films, welcomes partners who will help promote this film via social and traditional media and/or by sponsoring screenings and panel discussions. Back to top

CDC publishes report on hepatitis B screening and prevalence among refugees in the U.S.

CDC published Hepatitis B Screening and Prevalence Among Resettled Refugees—United States, 2006–2011 in the June 5 issue of MMWR (pages 570–573). The first paragraph is reprinted below.

Globally, more than two billion persons have been infected at some time with the hepatitis B virus (HBV), and approximately 3.5 million refugees have chronic HBV infection. The endemicity of HBV varies by region. Because chronic hepatitis B is infectious and persons with chronic infection benefit from treatment, CDC recommends screening for HBV among all refugees who originate in countries where the prevalence of hepatitis B surface antigen (HBsAg; a marker for acute or chronic infection) is ≥2% or who are at risk for HBV because of personal characteristics such as injection drug use or household contact with an individual with HBV infection. Currently, almost all refugees are routinely screened for hepatitis B. However, prevalence rates of HBV infection in refugee populations recently resettled in the United States have not been determined. A multisite, retrospective study was performed to evaluate the prevalence of past HBV infection, current infection, and immunity among refugees resettled in the United States; to better characterize the burden of hepatitis B in this population; and to inform screening recommendations. The study incorporated surveillance data from a large state refugee health program and chart reviews from three U.S. sites that conduct medical screenings of refugees. The prevalence of HBV infection (current or past as determined by available titer levels) varied among refugees originating in different countries and was higher among Burmese refugees than among refugees from Bhutan or Iraq. Current or past HBV infection was also higher among adults (aged >18 years) and male refugees. These data might help inform planning by states and resettlement agencies, as well as screening decisions by health care providers.

ASK THE EXPERTS
Question of the Week

Should a male postpone receiving the MMR vaccine if he and his spouse are trying to conceive? 
 

No. If a man receives a dose of MMR vaccine, he does not need to avoid conception for any interval. There is no risk of transmission of MMR vaccine virus from a vaccinated man to a woman, regardless of the level of intimacy.


About IAC's Question of the Week

Each week, IAC Express highlights a new, topical, or important-to-reiterate Q&A. This feature is a cooperative venture between IAC and CDC. William L. Atkinson, MD, MPH, IAC's associate director for immunization education, chooses a new Q&A to feature every week from a set of Q&As prepared by experts at CDC’s National Center for Immunization and Respiratory Diseases.

We hope you enjoy this new feature and find it helpful when dealing with difficult real-life scenarios in your vaccination practice. Please encourage your healthcare professional colleagues to sign up to receive IAC Express at www.immunize.org/subscribe.

If you have a question for the CDC immunization experts, you can email them directly at nipinfo@cdc.gov. There is no charge for this service.

Video of the Week
Documentary: Every Last Child
Documentary - Every Last Child: In 2012, polio persisted in only three countries and the number of victims was steadily decreasing. Pakistan was the key - with over 80% of all endemic cases. However, when the Pakistan Taliban issued a ban against the polio vaccination program, and incited fatal attacks against vaccinators, Pakistan's vaccination campaign was thrown into disarray. Since 2012, close to 80 Pakistani vaccinators and the police officers assigned to protect them have been targeted and killed. At this critical time, when we are closer than ever before to global eradication, increased international support and commitment can see the end of polio, once and for all. This moving and enlightening film by award-winning filmmaker Tom Roberts reminds us not only of the horrors of polio, ignorance and terrorism, but of the miracle of effective vaccines. Opens in theaters this month.
