Delaying routine vaccines does not increase seizure risk, but vaccinating does

(NaturalNews) You might want to sit down for this: A new study found that delaying the MMR vaccine or MMR and varicella combo vaccine (MMRV) could increase your child's risk of getting a fever-related seizure.This cohort "study" analyzed 323,247 vaccinated children to examine...

CONCLUSION: The demonstration of batch consistency and non-inferiority of the Bio-MMR vaccine completed the technology transfer. This is a significant technological achievement with implications for immunisation programs. PMID: 30843921 [PubMed - in process]

CONCLUSION: Demonstration of early disappearance of maternal antibodies against MMRV viruses leading to the risk of these infections at an early age emphasize need for early immunization of Indian children. Suboptimal response to measles vaccine needs to be seriously addressed especially in view of the WHO's initiative for measles eradication. PMID: 30765170 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

ConclusionsConsiderable vaccination delay should be addressed within the vaccine hesitancy spectrum. Delays may induce susceptibility to vaccine-preventable disease outbreaks; tailored programmes to improve timeliness are required. PMID: 30755293 [PubMed - in process]

te;na M, Montesdeoca Melián A, Ruiz-Contreras J, en representación del Comité Asesor de Vacunas de la Asociación Española de Pediatría (CAV-AEP) Abstract The Advisory Committee on Vaccines of the Spanish Association of Paediatrics annually publishes the immunisation schedule considered optimal for children resident in Spain, according to available evidence on current vaccines. As regards funded immunisations, the 2+1 strategy (2, 4, 11 months) with hexavalent (DTPa-IPV-Hib-HB) and 13-valent pneumococcal vaccines are recommended. Administration of the 6-year booster dose wi...

CONCLUSION: This investigation suggested that most large local reactions were causally associated with the Infanrix-hexa® vaccine and that the risk was not greater when ProQuad® and Infanrix-hexa® were administered in the same limb. Given the improved vaccine coverage for hepatitis B, benefit-risk analysis likely still favours ongoing use of Infanrix-hexa® with informed parental consent.

Authors: Devecioğlu E, Gökçay G, Boran P, Eren T, Yılmaz G, Badur S Abstract The protection of infants against infections during the first few months of life is provided mainly by maternal antibodies. The presence of maternal antibodies can decrease vaccine efficacy. The waning time of maternal antibodies shows variations therefore seroepidemiological studies are important for the development of vaccination schedules. Some recent studies showed that the maternal measles antibodies may disappear around 3 months of age especially in infants born from mothers who were vaccinated. There are few cross-sect...

Abstract This post-hoc analysis of data from a matched cohort study investigated the risk of febrile convulsions (FC) 5-12 days post-first dose of measles-mumps-rubella-varicella vaccine (MMRV) in a low-risk population, compared to measles-mumps-rubella (MMR) and varicella (V) vaccines administered separately. The low-risk population excluded children with personal history of FC (Scenario 1) and children with personal or/and family history (≥1 parent/sibling) of FC (Scenario 2). Incidence of FC post-MMRV in Scenario 2 (excluding at risk children) (36.3-49.5/100,000) and post-MMR+V in the whole cohort includin...

The objective of this analysis was to evaluate the health and economic implications of scheduling options for a transition to two dose UVV, considering both monovalent varicella vaccines (V) and quadrivalent measles-mumps-rubella-varicella vaccines (MMRV) in Argentina.

This report summarises Australian passive surveillance data for adverse events following immunisation (AEFI) for 2015 reported to the Therapeutic Goods Administration and compares them to long-term trends. There were 2,924 AEFI records for vaccines administered in 2015; an annual AEFI reporting rate of 12.3 per 100,000 population. There was a decline of 7% in the overall AEFI reporting rate in 2015 compared with 2014. This decline in reported adverse events in 2015 compared to the previous year was mainly attributable to fewer reports following the HPV vaccine and replacement of monovalent vaccines (Hib, MenCCV and varicel...

CONCLUSION: Non-inferiority of dTap-IPVB to dTap-IPVR was demonstrated. Both vaccines had a clinically acceptable safety and reactogenicity profile when co-administered with MMRV to children 3-4 years old. TRIAL REGISTRATION: NCT01245049 ( PMID: 29576304 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]
