This report summarizes vaccination coverage and exemption estimates collected by state and local immunization programs* for children in kindergarten (kindergartners) in 49 states and the District of Columbia (DC) and kindergartners provisionally enrolled (attending school without complete vaccination or exemption while completing a catch-up vaccination schedule) or in a grace period (a set interval during which a student may be enrolled and attend school without proof of complete vaccination or exemption) for 28 states. Median vaccination coverage† was 95.1% for the state-required number of doses of diphtheria and t...

This prospective cohort study assesses whether maternal immunization with tetanus, diphtheria, and acellular pertussis (Tdap) vaccine, compared with no immunization, is associated with high concentrations of pertussis toxin antibodies at birth and if there is an optimal gestational age for maternal immunization.

CONCLUSION: Children in care have consistently lower vaccine coverage than children not in care. Policies and practices should promote optimal access to vaccination for these children. PMID: 30284125 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

Conclusion: Existing guidance is often not migrant-specific and may not be applied in practice; clarification is needed on which vaccines should be given. Strategies are needed specifically for catch-up vaccination in adult migrants. Vaccinations should be offered in multiple settings, free of charge, with sufficient guidance and training provided to front-line healthcare professionals. PMID: 30326996 [PubMed - in process]

Abstract Vaccinating pregnant women with influenza and tetanus toxoid, reduced diphtheria toxoid, and acellular pertussis (Tdap) vaccines can reduce the risk for influenza and pertussis for themselves and their infants. The Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices (ACIP) recommends that all women who are or might be pregnant during the influenza season receive influenza vaccine, which can be administered any time during pregnancy (1). The ACIP also recommends that women receive Tdap during each pregnancy, preferably from 27 through 36 weeks' gestation (2). To assess influenza and Tdap vaccination coverage amon...

Abstract OBJECTIVE: To describe use of human papilloma virus (HPV) and meningococcal (MenACWY) vaccines among sixth and seventh grade Kansas children receiving their school-required tetanus, diphtheria, and acellular pertussis (Tdap) booster. METHODS: We used Medicaid and commercial claims data in Kansas from 2013, 2014, and 2015 to identify HPV and MenACWY vaccinations among sixth and seventh graders receiving a Tdap booster. Rates of concomitant vaccinations were calculated at the state and county level, and logistic regression was used to identify predictors of concomitant vaccination. RESULTS: Of six...

Abstract The UK primary vaccination course includes vaccination against diphtheria, tetanus, pertussis, polio and Haemophilus influenzae type b (DTaP/IPV/Hib) and is scheduled at ages four, 8 and 12 weeks, followed by a 'preschool booster' at age three years four months. Vaccine coverage is generally measured at age one, two and five years. In addition to high coverage, vaccination should be timely to maximise population protection. Vaccination histories for 315,381 children born March 2001 to April 2010 were extracted from Child Health Information Systems in nine London health service areas and grouped into fir...
