CDC posts updated Td VIS

On April 11, CDC posted an updated Td VIS. This update corrects an error in the 2/24/2015 Td VIS. The instruction to talk to your doctor if you "have seizures or another nervous system problem" has been removed. This precaution applies to Tdap vaccine but not to Td, and was inadvertently included on the Td VIS.
 
Providers may use up existing stocks of the outgoing VIS, but should make patients aware that this is NOT a precaution for Td.

So far in 2017, 42 states and D.C. have reported 1,965 mumps cases; learn more

From January 1 to March 25, 2017, 42 U.S. states and the District of Columbia reported 1,965 mumps cases to CDC. Some information from CDC's website follows.

Mumps is no longer very common in the United States. From year to year, mumps cases can range from roughly a couple hundred to a couple thousand. For example in 2016, there were approximately 5,748 cases reported to CDC, and in 2012, there were 229. Before the U.S. mumps vaccination program started in 1967, about 186,000 cases were reported each year, but the actual number of cases was likely much higher due to underreporting. Since the pre-vaccine era, there has been a more than 99% decrease in mumps cases in the United States....

In some years, there are more cases of mumps than usual because of outbreaks. Mumps outbreaks can occur any time of year. A major factor contributing to outbreaks is being in a crowded environment, such as attending the same class, playing on the same sports team, or living in a dormitory with a person who has mumps. Also, certain behaviors that result in exchanging saliva, such as kissing or sharing utensils, cups, lipstick or cigarettes, might increase spread of the virus.

MMR vaccine prevents most, but not all, cases of mumps and complications caused by the disease. Two doses of the vaccine are 88% (range: 66 to 95%) effective at protecting against mumps; one dose is 78% (range: 49% to 92%) effective. The MMR vaccine protects against currently circulating mumps strains. Outbreaks can still occur in highly vaccinated U.S. communities, particularly in close-contact settings. In recent years, outbreaks have occurred in schools, colleges, and camps. However, high vaccination coverage helps limit the size, duration, and spread of mumps outbreaks.

FEATURED RESOURCES


Every Child By Two and Young Minds Inspired develop a Vaccinate Your Family program for daycare providers

Every Child By Two (ECBT) has collaborated with Young Minds Inspired (YMI) to develop the Vaccinate Your Family program for daycare providers. The goal of the program is to help daycare providers inform and educate the parents and grandparents of children in their care about the key role they play in protecting children against serious vaccine-preventable diseases by keeping their own vaccinations up to date. Daycare providers and other vaccine advocates can use these fun activities, take- home handouts, and wall poster to raise awareness of the importance of vaccines for people of all ages, not just children.

The program materials can be downloaded from ECBT’s Vaccinate Your Family website or the YMI Classroom website. ECBT also has a limited number of hard copies of the posters available. If you are interested in receiving one, please contact ECBT at info@ecbt.org.

JOURNAL ARTICLES AND NEWSLETTERS


CDC reports on complications of mumps in 20 college students who had received 2 doses of MMR

CDC published Notes from the Field: Complications of Mumps During a University Outbreak Among Students Who Had Received 2 Doses of Measles-Mumps-Rubella Vaccine—Iowa, July 2015–May 2016 in the April 14 issue of MMWR (pages 390–1). The first paragraph is reprinted below.

During July 2015–May 2016, a mumps outbreak occurred at the University of Iowa, which is located in Johnson County. A total of 301 cases of mumps were diagnosed among students. To characterize the outbreak, the Johnson County Public Health Department, the Iowa Department of Public Health, and the University of Iowa, with assistance from CDC, conducted an investigation through telephone interviews, medical chart abstractions, and review of immunization records. Among 287 (95%) students with mumps for whom clinical information was available, 20 (7%) patients with complications were identified (16 self-reported and four clinician- diagnosed). The 20 cases included 15 (5%) cases of orchitis, three (1%) of transient hearing loss, two of mastitis, and one of meningitis (one patient had both orchitis and transient hearing loss). All 20 patients had documentation of receipt of at least 2 doses of measles-mumps-rubella vaccine. Because data are limited regarding the presentation and clinical course of mumps complications in persons who have received 2 doses of mumps-containing vaccine, three illustrative cases of complications (orchitis, transient hearing loss, and meningitis) in students with mumps are presented.

EDUCATION AND TRAINING


CDC to sponsor May 2 NetConference about best practices for holding safe vaccination clinics in temporary settings

CDC will sponsor a 1-hour NetConference on May 2 at 1:00 p.m. (ET) titled "'Best Practice' Tools for Holding Safe Vaccination Clinics in Temporary Settings: Checklist and Pledge 101." Satellite, temporary, and off-site vaccination clinics play an important role in improving vaccination coverage rates and vaccinating hard-to-reach populations. However, vaccination clinics held in these settings also have unique challenges that may lead to vaccine temperature excursions or vaccine administration errors. In an effort to standardize the process of holding clinics in these non-traditional settings, the National Adult and Influenza Immunization Summit Influenza Working Group developed a checklist of best practices and created a pledge for organizations that adhere to the checklist. The webinar will also feature a case study from an industry expert whose organization made efforts to implement the checklist during last year’s influenza season.

ASK THE EXPERTS

Question of the Week

Tenivac Td (Sanofi Pasteur) for adults is expected to be unavailable until the second half of 2017. Another Td vaccine produced by MassBiologics is available at our wholesaler, but it looks like the components are slightly different from Tenivac. Are the two products interchangeable during the shortage?    

Yes, the Td products are equivalent and interchangeable. 


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 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.
