Routine Infant and Childhood Immunization Schedule (with injection site information) b. Adult Immunization Schedule 1a. New: Expanded eligibility for free HPV vaccine for select males 9-26 years of age Expanded eligibility: There is a new HPV vaccine program available for boys and young men who are gay, MSM, or who may be questioning their sexual identity. As heterosexual boys are likely to be protected through immunization of girls, this program aims to protect boys who remain otherwise unprotected. This program also includes other key populations: street involved youth, HIV positive males, youth in the care of the Ministry of Children and Family Development, and those in youth custody services. Orders and reporting: Effective immediately, you may order Gardasil from your local health unit in order to immunize eligible males. Males 9-14 years of age only need two doses six months apart, those 15 years and older require three doses at 0, 2 and 6 months. We appreciate your cooperation in reporting back on Gardasil doses administered so that we can update client immunization records and evaluate this important program. Private purchase recommendation for boys: The province is not funding a universal program for male youths as it is not considered cost-effective when vaccine coverage in females is over 50%. However, if parents wish to ensure their sons are protected, we recommend immunization. Vaccine can be purchased with a prescription or at VCH Travel Clinic. Many private drug plans cover vaccines. 1b. Fluzone : a new vaccine product in the influenza immunization campaign This fall, the campaign will have a new product for children. While the vaccines for adults provide protection against three strains of influenza virus (A/California/7/2009 (H1N1)pdm09-like virus, A/Switzerland/ /2013 (H3N2)-like virus, B/Phuket/3073/2013-like virus), the quadrivalent vaccines for children, Fluzone and Flumist, also provide protection against B/Brisbane/60/2008-like virus. Flumist is the preferred product for children but it cannot be administered to very young children, ages 6-23 months, or those with a contraindication to a live vaccine. Fluzone can be offered to children who cannot receive Flumist or choose not to receive Flumist. The other influenza vaccines available this fall include Fluad for seniors, and Fluviral or Agriflu for individuals years of age. More details on the influenza campaign will be coming in a few weeks time. You can reach a Medical Health Officer in Vancouver at For public health emergencies after hours, contact the Medical Health Officer on call at (604) Vancouver Medical Health Officers Dr. Patricia Daly (Chief Medical Health Officer) Dr. John Carsley Dr. Réka Gustafson Dr. Althea Hayden

2 1 September a. Reminder: Prevnar 13 now publicly funded for HIV patients HIV patients can now receive two types of pneumococcal vaccines: the conjugate (PCV13; Prevnar 13) should be offered in addition to polysaccharide vaccine (PPV23; Pneumo 23 or Pneumovax 23). Sequencing and interval between the two vaccines is important. Dose and schedule for adults with HIV: Pneumococcal Vaccine (Prevnar 13) - of 0.5mL, administered IM Client History Unimmunized Previously received PPV23 vaccine Schedule Dose 1: Prevnar 13; Dose 2: PPV23, 8 weeks later Wait 1 year interval from PPV23 and provide one dose Prevnar 13 2b. Reminder: MMRV now available for kindergarten age children Children now get their second dose MMR at kindergarten entry in a new formulation combined with varicella vaccine: MMRV (Priorix-Tetra ). Please order this product for your K children. We do not recommend children 12 months of age receive MMRV due to increased risk of febrile seizures. Please give the first dose of MMR and V as two different products at two different sites. 3a. Should I recommend Gardasil 9 to my patients? Gardasil 9 is the third HPV vaccine available in Canada (in addition to Cervarix and Gardasil ). It provides protection against HPV types 6, 11, 16 and 18 (included in Gardasil ) as well as HPV types 31, 33, 45, 52 and 58. HPV 6 and 11 cause genital warts while 16 and 18 are responsible for the majority of cervical (66-70%) cancers. The incremental benefit of Gardasil 9 is protection against additional 15-20% of cervical cancers in women and 5% of invasive cancers in men. At the moment, there are no Canadian recommendations for the use of Gardasil 9. The American Committee on Immunization Practices (ACIP) recommends that all three vaccines can be used to prevent cervical cancer in women and either of the two Gardasil vaccines can be offered to men. A HPV vaccine series started with Gardasil can be completed with Gardasil 9. For individuals who have already completed their HPV vaccine series, ACIP has not made a recommendation to provide additional doses of Gardasil 9. Should patients choose to buy additional protection against HPV infection, it is certainly safe to offer up to three doses of Gardasil 9 in this scenario. 3b. Can public health provide support to strengthen vaccine management in physician offices? Absolutely. Many of you have requested this support in the past and we have found one time funds to do exactly that. If you are interested in having a visit from one of our staff, please We also recommend this half hour on-line vaccine storage and handling refresher course for your office staff: 4a. Routine Infant and Childhood Immunization Schedule (with injection site information) This tool was developed in partnership with family physicians and is intended to be posted on your vaccine fridge. Important note about injection site changes for children starting at 12 months of age: IM: Deltoid is the preferred site if children have adequate muscle mass (transition from vastus lateralis) Subcutaneous (for live vaccines): Upper outer aspect of triceps 4b. Adult Immunization Schedule This tool outlines publicly funded vaccines for ALL adults, free vaccines for adults with additional health or social criteria, and private pay vaccines that are recommended for adults. The latter category is based on recommendations by the National Advisory Committee of Immunization.

3 September 2015 Routine Infant and Childhood Immunization Schedule, current as of Sep Please discard all previous schedules. Age 1 Vaccines Admin. Site 2 months Rotavirus vaccine Oral Diphtheria/Tetanus/acellular Pertussis/HB/IPV/Hib (INFANRIX hexa [6]) Meningococcal C conjugate 4 months Rotavirus vaccine Oral Diphtheria/Tetanus/acellular Pertussis/HB/IPV/Hib (INFANRIX hexa [6]) Meningococcal C conjugate (at-risk infants only) 2 6 months Diphtheria/Tetanus/acellular Pertussis/HB/IPV/Hib (INFANRIX hexa [6]) (at-risk infants only) 3 Hepatitis A vaccine (Aboriginal children only) On or after 1 st birthday Meningococcal C conjugate Varicella (this dose will need to be repeated if given before 12 months) MMR (this dose will need to be repeated if given before 12 months) or 18 months Diphtheria/Tetanus/acellular Pertussis/IPV/Hib (INFANRIX IPV/Hib [5]) Hepatitis A vaccine (Aboriginal children only) Kindergarten Diphtheria/Tetanus/acellular Pertussis/IPV (INFANRIX IPV [4]) Entry starting Measles mumps, rubella, varicella (MMR-V) Age 4 years Grade 6 Meningococcal C conjugate booster HPV x 2 (0 and 6 months, girls) Grade 9 Tetanus/diphtheria/acellular pertussis Influenza Catch Up Vaccines Influenza vaccine is provided free to all infants 6-59 months of age and older children with risk factors; two doses one month apart are required if receiving influenza vaccine for the first time if 8 years of age and younger Catch up vaccines are vaccines that an eligible child may have missed previously. Public health nurses review histories and will offer these vaccines in kindergarten, grades 6 and 9. or intransal 1 Please follow the recommended schedule which includes minimum age and minimum interval criteria for vaccines. Vaccines given too early or too close together may need to be repeated (eg, MMR or Varicella given before 12 months of age). 2 Four-month meningococcal c conjugate vaccine dose is provided free for infants with the following conditions: functional or anatomic asplenia, immunodeficiency (congenital, acquired through disease or therapy), transplant recipients. 3 Six-month pneumococcal conjugate vaccine dose is provided free for infants with the following conditions: anatomic or functional asplenia, sickle cell disease, hemoglobinopathies, immunosuppression, transplant recipients, chronic conditions of the heart, lung, liver, or kidney, diabetes, cystic fibrosis, chronic CSF leak, chronic neurological conditions that impair clearance of oral secretions, and cochlear implant.

4 Vaccine administration and pain management information Physicians Update September 2015 Tips for managing pain: Breastfeeding is recommended during and after vaccine administration as it will decrease procedure related pain. In addition, oral rotarix vaccine should be given first to 2 and 4 month old infants as sucrose in the vaccine acts as an analgesic. To reduce pain, inject rapidly and remove the needle in one swift motion. When giving multiple injections at the same visit, give biological products that are known to cause more stinging and/or pain last (e.g., give MMR or Varicella last). Please do not administer injections into the gluteus due to increased risk of adverse reactions and lower immune response obtained at this site.
