IAC’s “Take a Stand™” workshops proving highly successful around the country: Register NOW for the next sessions in California (January 19–23, 2016) 

The Immunization Action Coalition (IAC), with support from Pfizer, has implemented Take a Stand™, a national effort designed to improve adult immunization rates by increasing the use of standing orders in medical practices.*
 
At the core of this project are free workshops led by national experts, including L.J Tan, MS, PhDWilliam Atkinson, MD, MPH; and Deborah Wexler, MD, from IAC, and Alexandra Stewart, JD, from George Washington University. These workshops already have been conducted in Louisville, KY; Chicago, IL; Portsmouth, VA; Nashville, TN; and Little Rock, AR. To illustrate how these have been going, here is a small sampling of comments received from attendees:
 
“Not only does this workshop provide great education, but it provides you with the tools and resources you need to implement this within your practice.” J.M., APN, MPH (Chicago, IL)
 
“This workshop gave us great ideas and information. Can’t wait to go back and start this process to get our Standing Orders going.” 
T.S., clinical manager (Fredericksburg, VA)
 
“Fantastic—great expertise, resources, tools and advice.” 
D.S. (Nashville, TN)
 
“This workshop is excellent for nursing directors/managers in the ambulatory setting. Excellent resources for preventive services.” 
L.R., primary care service line nursing director (Little Rock, AR)
 
Don’t miss your chance to join these satisfied attendees. The next workshops are scheduled for 2016 in four California cities.

Be sure to note that these are one-time only events in each city. 

Who should attend? Clinicians, nurses, and practice managers in medical offices that serve adults, as well as pharmacists and quality improvement managers, will benefit from the workshops.
 
In addition to the California sessions, other workshop locations and schedules, a sample agenda, and online registration are available on the Take a Stand™ website at www.standingorders.org

Please “take a stand” with us and spread the word about this unique opportunity for medical practices to improve their adult immunization rates while empowering staff and streamlining facility operations.
 
* Standing orders are written protocols approved by a physician or other authorized practitioner that allow qualified healthcare professionals (who are eligible to do so under state law, such as registered nurses or pharmacists) to assess the need for vaccination and to vaccinate patients meeting certain criteria.

CDC releases information for clinicians about current Pentacel shortage

On December 7, CDC posted the following information on its website about the current Pentacel shortage:

Sanofi Pasteur is experiencing a manufacturing delay with Pentacel (DTaP-IPV/Hib) vaccine, which is anticipated to result in constrained supplies throughout the first half of 2016. However, Sanofi Pasteur has sufficient supplies of the relevant single antigen vaccines (DAPTACEL, ActHIB, and IPOL) to address the anticipated gap in Pentacel supply.

The Immunization Action Coalition (IAC) is pleased to announce that five new institutions have been accepted into its Hepatitis B Birth Dose Honor Roll. The birthing institutions are listed below with their reported hepatitis B birth dose coverage rates in parentheses.

  • Baptist Health La Grange, La Grange, KY (96%)
  • Lowell General Hospital, Lowell, MA (96%)
  • Montefiore Medical Center, Wakefield Hospital, Bronx, NY (97%)
  • Southern Maine Health Care, Biddeford, ME (94%)
  • Upson Regional Medical Center, Thomaston, GA (97%)

The following two institutions are being recognized for a second year:

  • Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center, Boston, MA (91%)
  • St. Anthony Regional Hospital, Carroll, IA (96%)

In addition, the following two institutions are being recognized for a third year:

JOURNAL ARTICLES AND NEWSLETTERS


CDC reports on influenza activity in the United States from October 4 to November 28, 2015

CDC published Update: Influenza Activity—United States, October 4–November 28, 2015 in the December 11 issue of MMWR (pages 1342–1348). A summary made available to the press is reprinted below.

During October 4–November 28, 2015, influenza activity in the United States increased slightly, although activity remained low. Influenza A (H1N1)pdm09, influenza A(H3N2), and influenza B viruses have been detected in the United States with influenza A (H3N2) predominating. Antigenic and/or genetic characterization of influenza-positive respiratory specimens submitted to CDC indicate that the majority of the influenza virus isolates recently examined in the U.S. are characterized as being similar to the 2014–2015 Northern Hemisphere reference vaccine viruses. Healthcare providers should offer vaccine to all unvaccinated persons aged ≥6 months now and throughout the influenza season as long as influenza viruses are circulating.

ASK THE EXPERTS

Question of the Week

We are having difficulty getting meningococcal polysaccharide vaccine (MPSV4, Menomune, Sanofi). Does CDC have a recommendation for the use of meningococcal conjugate vaccine (MCV4) off label in vaccine-naïve older adults?   

A meningococcal conjugate immunogenicity study in older adults indicated that this group did not have as high of an antibody response to serogroup Y compared to older adults who received polysaccharide vaccine. There is much more polysaccharide in MPSV4 (50 micrograms per serogroup) compared to MCV4 (5–10 micrograms per serogroup), which is thought to be the reason for the better response to polysaccharide vaccine in older adults. However, if there is an urgent need for travel, it is reasonable to administer MCV4 if MPSV4 is not available. If the need for vaccination is not urgent, awaiting availability of MPSV4 is preferred.
 
ACIP recommends that for meningococcal vaccine-naïve persons age 56 years or older who anticipate requiring a single dose of meningococcal vaccine (such as travelers and persons at risk as a result of a community outbreak), MPSV4 is preferred. For persons now age 56 years or older who were vaccinated previously with MCV4 and are recommended for revaccination or for whom multiple doses are anticipated (such as persons with asplenia and microbiologists), MCV4 is preferred. These recommendations are available at www.cdc.gov/mmwr/pdf/rr/rr6202.pdf, page 15.
