CDC releases ACIP recommendations on use of influenza vaccines for 2020–21 influenza season

CDC has released Prevention and Control of Seasonal Influenza with Vaccines: Recommendations of the Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices—United States, 2020–21 Influenza Season in the August 21 MMWR Recommendations and Reports. Excerpts from the Summary section appear below.

Inactivated influenza vaccines (IIVs), recombinant influenza vaccine (RIV4), and live attenuated influenza vaccine (LAIV4) are expected to be available. Most influenza vaccines available for the 2020–21 season will be quadrivalent, with the exception of MF59-adjuvanted IIV, which is expected to be available in both quadrivalent and trivalent formulations.

… Primary updates to this report include the following two items. First, the composition of 2020–21 U.S. influenza vaccines includes updates to the influenza A(H1N1)pdm09, influenza A(H3N2), and influenza B/Victoria lineage components. Second, recent licensures of two new influenza vaccines, Fluzone High-Dose Quadrivalent and Fluad Quadrivalent, are discussed. Both new vaccines are licensed for persons aged ≥65 years. Additional changes include updated discussion of contraindications and precautions to influenza vaccination and the accompanying Table, updated discussion concerning use of LAIV4 in the setting of influenza antiviral medication use, and updated recommendations concerning vaccination of persons with egg allergy who receive either cell culture–based IIV4 (ccIIV4) or RIV4.

… Influenza vaccination of persons aged ≥6 months to reduce prevalence of illness caused by influenza will reduce symptoms that might be confused with those of COVID-19. Prevention of and reduction in the severity of influenza illness and reduction of outpatient illnesses, hospitalizations, and intensive care unit admissions through influenza vaccination also could alleviate stress on the U.S. health care system. Guidance for vaccine planning during the pandemic is available at https://www.cdc.gov/vaccines/pandemic-guidance/index.html.

… A brief summary of the recommendations and a link to the most recent Background Document containing additional information are available at https://www.cdc.gov/vaccines/hcp/acip-recs/vacc-specific/flu.html. … Updates and other information are available from CDC’s influenza website (https://www.cdc.gov/flu).

Massachusetts mandates flu vaccine for all children and adults attending childcare, pre-school, K-12, colleges, and universities. Seven more colleges and universities require flu vaccine for students and staff.

On August 19, the Massachusetts Department of Public Health (MDPH) announced that the influenza vaccine is now required for all Massachusetts students age 6 months and older who are enrolled in childcare, pre-school, K-12, and higher education. A paragraph from the press release appears below. 

Students will be expected to have received a flu vaccine by December 31, 2020 for the 2020–2021 influenza season, unless either a medical or religious exemption is provided. Also exempted are K-12 students who are homeschooled and higher education students who are completely off-campus and engaged in remote learning only. This new flu immunization requirement to enter school in January is in addition to existing vaccine requirements for all those attending child care, preschool, K-12, and colleges and universities in Massachusetts. Elementary and secondary students in districts and schools that are using a remote education model are not exempt.
 
Access the full press release.

Besides all Massachusetts colleges and universities, at least seven other colleges and universities have mandated influenza vaccination for the 2020–21 academic year: Butler UniversityDuke University, Purdue University, ten campuses in the University of California system, University of Miami, four campuses in the University of Tennessee system, and Wabash College

HHS amends emergency rules, authorizing pharmacists to vaccinate children under specific conditions
 
On August 19, the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) issued its Third Amendment to Declaration under the Public Readiness and Emergency Preparedness Act [PREP] for Medical Countermeasures against COVID 19 to expand access to childhood vaccines.

The amended declaration authorizes pharmacists who meet certain criteria to order and administer ACIP-recommended vaccines to individuals ages 3 through 18 years, subject to several requirements. Pharmacists must have at least 20 hours of specified training, comply with local recordkeeping requirements, inform the patient’s primary-care provider, report to immunization information systems, report adverse events, and comply with other requirements. Pharmacists are to inform caregivers accompanying the child of the importance of a well-child visit with a pediatrician or other licensed primary-care provider, referring patients as appropriate.

An excerpt from the press release is reprinted below.

...The amendment authorizes State-licensed pharmacists (and pharmacy interns acting under their supervision to administer vaccines, if the pharmacy intern is licensed or registered by his or her State board of pharmacy) to order and administer vaccines to individuals ages three through 18 years, subject to several requirements...

...HHS is expanding access to childhood vaccines to avoid preventable diseases in children, additional strains on the healthcare system, and any further increase in avoidable adverse health consequences—particularly if such complications coincide with an additional resurgence of COVID-19.

NIS-Teen: “National, Regional, State, and Selected Local Area Vaccination Coverage Among Adolescents Aged 13–17 Years—United States, 2019” published in MMWR

CDC published National, Regional, State, and Selected Local Area Vaccination Coverage among Adolescents Aged 13–17 Years—United States, 2019 in the August 21 issue of MMWR. Three vaccines are recommended by the Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices (ACIP) for routine vaccination of adolescents aged 11–12 years to protect against pertussis; meningococcal disease caused by types A, C, W, and Y; and human papillomavirus (HPV)-associated cancers.

CDC analyzed data from the 2019 National Immunization Survey-Teen (NIS-Teen) to estimate vaccination coverage among adolescents aged 13–17 years in the United States.

  • HPV: Coverage with ≥1 dose of HPV vaccine increased from 68.1% in 2018 to 71.5% in 2019. The percentage of adolescents up to date with the HPV vaccination series (HPV UTD) increased from 51.1% in 2018 to 54.2% in 2019. HPV vaccination coverage measures improved among both females and males.
  • MenACWY and MenB: Adolescent coverage with ≥1 dose of MenACWY increased from 86.6% in 2018 to 88.9% in 2019. Among 17-year-olds, 53.7% received the booster dose of MenACWY in 2019, not statistically different from 50.8% in 2018. Receipt of ≥1 dose of MenB increased from 17.2% in 2018 to 21.8% in 2019.
  • Pertussis: Coverage with ≥1 dose of Tdap remained stable and high (90.2%).
  • Social Trends: Among adolescents living at or above the poverty level, those living outside a metropolitan statistical area had lower coverage with ≥1 dose of MenACWY and with ≥1 HPV vaccine dose, and a lower percentage were HPV UTD, compared with those living in MSA principal cities.

The Immunization Action Coalition (IAC) is pleased to announce that four new institutions have been accepted into its Hepatitis B Birth Dose Honor Roll, for a total of 516 honorees. The birthing institutions are listed below with their reported hepatitis B birth dose coverage rates in parentheses.

  • NYC Health + Hospitals/Elmhurst, Elmhurst, NY (99%)
  • Southwestern Medical Center, Lawton, OK (98%)
  • St. John’s Episcopal Hospital, Far Rockaway, NY (93%)
  • White Oak Medical Center, Silver Spring, MD (93%)

Two institutions are being recognized for a second year:

  • Covenant Children’s Hospital, Lubbock, TX (97%)
  • Sharon Regional Medical Center, Sharon, PA (96%)

Three institutions are being recognized for a third year:

  • Abington Hospital – Jefferson Health, Abington, PA (93%)
  • Phoenixville Hospital, Phoenixville, PA (96%)
  • Pottstown Hospital, Pottstown, PA (91%)

One institution is being recognized for a fourth year: 

  • NYC Health + Hospitals/Queens, Jamaica, NY (99%)

Finally, one institution is being recognized for a fifth year:

  • Lowell General Hospital, Lowell, MA (99%)

The Honor Roll now includes 516 birthing institutions from 44 states, Puerto Rico, Guam, and an overseas U.S. military base. One hundred seventeen institutions have qualified for two years, 75 institutions have qualified three times, 37 institutions have qualified four times, 24 institutions have qualified five times, 17 institutions have qualified six times, seven institutions have qualified seven times, two institutions have qualified eight times and one institution has qualified nine times.

The Honor Roll is a key part of IAC’s major initiative urging the nation’s hospitals to Give Birth to the End of Hep B. Hospitals and birthing centers are recognized for attaining high coverage rates for administering hepatitis B vaccine at birth and meeting specific additional criteria. The initiative urges qualifying healthcare organizations to apply for the Hepatitis B Birth Dose Honor Roll online.

To be included in the Hepatitis B Birth Dose Honor Roll, a birthing institution must have: (1) reported a coverage rate of 90 percent or greater, over a 12-month period, for administering hepatitis B vaccine before hospital discharge to all newborns, including those whose parents refuse vaccination, and (2) implemented specific written policies, procedures, and protocols to protect all newborns from hepatitis B virus infection prior to hospital discharge.

Honorees are also awarded an 8.5" x 11" color certificate suitable for framing and their acceptance is announced to IAC Express’s approximately 52,000 readers.

Please visit the Hepatitis B Birth Dose Honor Roll web page that lists these institutions and their exceptional efforts to protect infants from perinatal hepatitis B transmission.

Journal Articles and Newsletters


JAMA and JN Learning discuss measles vaccine refusal and consequent measles outbreaks in the U.S.

In its August 14 issue, JAMA published Vaccine Refusal and Measles Outbreaks in the US. This review found that unvaccinated individuals constitute the majority of cases in measles outbreaks in the U.S. Most U.S. outbreaks stem from importation of measles by travelers who acquired measles in countries where measles remains endemic. Outbreaks are then sustained in communities where a high proportion of unvaccinated individuals reside. 

JN Learning released a related podcast, titled The Consequences of Not Vaccinating for Measles, in which the study’s senior author, Saad Omer, PhD, from the Yale Institute for Global Health, discusses the challenges in achieving adequate measles vaccination.
