[The Conversation Africa] Forty-five years ago, the World Health Organisation launched the Expanded Programme on Immunisation. It covered six diseases - measles, tuberculosis, polio, diphtheria, pertussis and tetanus. Since then, anti-measles vaccines have been distributed to millions of children across the world, leading to a massive reduction in illness and death. For example, between 2000 and 2017, it was estimated that global deaths from measles had reduced by about 80% due to vaccination.

We appreciate the commentary from Michaud et al, particularly for pointing out the French vaccine guidelines ’ recommendations for measles-mumps-rubella, diphtheria-tetanus-pertussis, pneumococcal, influenza, and hepatitis A vaccines. In our article,1 we primarily relied on the recommendations by the Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices (ACIP)2 and the Infectious Diseases Society of America (IDSA ) guidelines,3 which are mostly in agreement with the French guidelines. We agree with Michaud et al that strengthening the patient-doctor relationship and emphasizing the importance of physicians offering vaccines a...

Unfortunately, some vaccines provide only partial protection or in some cases vaccine-mediated immunity may wane rapidly, resulting in either increased susceptibility to that disease or a requirement for more booster vaccinations in order to maintain immunity above a protective level. The durability of a...

In this study we have evaluated whether our OMVs vaccine is capable of overcoming the deficiencies of commercial vaccines in both controlling infections caused by PRN(-) isolate/strain and inducing memory immunity. We found that our OMVs-based formulation has a higher protective capacity against the PRN(-) bacteria than that induced with a commercial aP vaccine. We found that CD4 T cells with a tissue-resident memory (TRM) cell phenotype (CD44+CD62LlowCD69+ and/or CD103+) accumulated in the lungs of mice after the second OMVs vaccine immunization. CD4 TRM cells were also detected in mice immunized with wP vaccine, but not ...
