  • Influenza vaccination in India When, whom & how to vaccinate? Dr Gaurav Gupta, Pediatrician, Member AAP, IAP, Charak Clinics, Mohali March 2013
  • Conflict of Interest• Received grants from various vaccine manufacturers including – - Sanofi Pasteur – - GSK – - Abbott (Manufacturers of different Influenza vaccines)
  • Overview• Influenza – what is it ?• Is it really that big a problem – World/ India/ Children ?• Influenza vaccine – rationale for use• What data exists regarding Influenza vaccine safety & effectiveness, especially from India ?• When, whom & how to vaccinate ?
  • CASEAlisha is a 7-year-old girl brought to your Clinic by her mother, who tells you her daughter “suddenly came down with a bad cold.” She reports that “Alisha was fine when she went to bed” but in the morning suddenly became ill with vomiting, a dry cough, sore throat, and high fever. WHAT DO YOU THINK IS THIS??
  • Often misunderstood and underestimated, Influenza is not just “a bad cold”!
  • CLINICAL FEATURES & CASE DEFINITIONInfluenza can also present as croup, bronchiolitis, pneumonia, febrile diseasemimicking bacterial sepsisCan predispose to bacterial infections (otitis media, pneumonia, bronchiolitis) Laboratory Confirmation required for epidemiological purposes only JAMA 2000; 284 (13): 1740
  • Let us learn from our past!!!
  • Impact of influenza on children Annual attack rate in preschool age exceeds 40% and in school age more than 30% during outbreaks 120 Influenza contributes to: excess in hospitalization (per 104 100 Up to 3 days of fever, 5 days 10000 per year) school absenteeism 80 Up to 35% increase in OPD visits 60 50 and excess hospitalization 40 Up to 20-30% increase in Antibiotics 19 20 Complications 9 4 0 Absenteeism in parents, more with <6 6-12 1-3 years 3-5 years 5-15 years months months those nursing younger children Age1.

  • Methodology • Prospective Observational Cohort Study Study Design • Vaccinated cohort (n=170) vs. Unvaccinated cohort (n=330) • Healthy child, of either sex, above 6 months ofInclusion criteria age up to 18 years of age • No chronic illness except asthma • Standard Predefined Data Form used.Data Collection • Parameters measured – ILI, Absenteeism, ARI, Unscheduled Physician visits 13
  • Continued….. Methodology • Private outpatient pediatric setting (Charak Study site Care Clinics, Mohali)Study period • September, 2010 to May, 2011 14

  • Conclusion• Flu vaccine is effective in reducing ILI & unscheduled visits to doctor. No effect of partial vaccination
  • SAGE Data- Protection against influenza• Vaccine effectiveness studies have found VE of 60-85% in children < 5 yrs age when vaccine strains match well with circulating strains• Limited data indicate additional protection of unvaccinated household and community contacts by immunization of children Sage working group: Background Paper on Influenza Vaccines and Immunization.

  • WHO National Influenza Center (as of April 2011)• Pune (NIV),• Kasauli (CRI)• & Mumbai (Haffkine Institute)
  • WHO recommendations• For countries in equatorial regions, epidemiological considerations influences which recommendation (February or September) individual national and regional authorities consider more appropriate• In most of the countries using influenza vaccine, the vaccination starts before the onset of peak influenza season, with the latest available strain of vaccine WHO Influenza Vaccine Recommendations
  • 2009 IndiaJuly- August 2010 July- August
  • India 2011 J J A SInfluenza virus circulation peaks in June-August
  • March- April August - October
  • IAP 2012 recommendations • Data since 2004 suggests a clear peaking of circulation during the rainy season across the country- ‘June to August’ in north (Delhi), west (Pune) and east (Kolkata), and ‘October to December’ in south (Chennai) • Influenza vaccines are given before the peak season. Hence, the best time for offering vaccine for individuals residing in southern states would be just before the onset of rainy season, i.e. before October while for rest of the country, it should be before JuneIAPCOI.
