  4. 4. Terminology! <ul><li>Vaccination: the process of administering a vaccine </li></ul><ul><li>Immunisation: the process of inducing immunity to disease </li></ul><ul><li>Immunity is usually acquired naturally, but can be induced by vaccination </li></ul>
  5. 5. Immunity <ul><li>Active </li></ul><ul><li>An antibody response formed by the body </li></ul><ul><li>Induced by vaccine or natural infection </li></ul><ul><li>Passive </li></ul><ul><li>Antibody is donated </li></ul><ul><li>e.g. immunoglobulin or maternal antibody passed to infant </li></ul>
  6. 6. Why immunise? <ul><li>To prevent or protect against serious disease </li></ul><ul><li>To eliminate a particular disease from a defined population </li></ul><ul><li>To eradicate a disease entirely e.g. smallpox </li></ul>
  7. 7. <ul><li>However it is not possible to eradicate all vaccine-preventable diseases: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Asymptomatic carriage </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Mutating organisms e.g. influenza </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Animal reservoirs e.g. SARS, avian influenza </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Environmental reservoirs e.g. tetanus </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Global travel/mass immigration </li></ul></ul>
  8. 8. Population (herd) immunity <ul><li>“ Population immunity is the state achieved when immunisation programmes reach sufficiently high coverage of the target population to interrupt transmission within the community” </li></ul><ul><li>Depends on: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Degree to which disease is infectious </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Efficacy of vaccines </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Vulnerability of population </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Environmental factors </li></ul></ul>
  9. 9. Herd Immunity <ul><li>Protects people unable to be vaccinated i.e too young, have health problems, pregnant. </li></ul><ul><li>Thresholds (% of population that needs to be immune) are quite high. </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Polio 80-86% </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Diphtheria 85% </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Measles 95% </li></ul></ul>

  13. 13. UK Childhood Vaccination schedule <ul><li>When to immunise What is given </li></ul><ul><li>2 months old DTaP/IPV/Hib (Pediacel) & PCV (Prevenar 13) </li></ul><ul><li>3 months old DTaP/IPV/Hib (Pediacel) & Men C </li></ul><ul><li>4 months old DTaP/IPV/Hib (Pediacel) & PCV & MenC </li></ul><ul><li>Between 12 and Hib/ Men C & PCV & MMR </li></ul><ul><li>13 months old </li></ul><ul><li>3 years and 4months or dTaP/IPV or DTaP/IPV & </li></ul><ul><li>As soon after. MMR </li></ul><ul><li>13 to 18 years old Td/IPV (Revaxis) </li></ul><ul><li>Girls aged 12-13yrs HPV (Cervarix) </li></ul>
  14. 14. SIRS <ul><li>Scottish Immunisation Recall System </li></ul><ul><li>File opened at birth </li></ul><ul><li>Should have complete immunisation record up to school leaving </li></ul><ul><li>Records immunisations which are scheduled </li></ul><ul><li>Unscheduled attendee form to be completed for all non-recall vaccinations </li></ul>
  15. 15. Successes <ul><li>Efficacy of National Childhood Immunisation Programme </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Cases of Measles notified in under 15’s in Scotland  from over 12,000 in 1976 to 147 in 2007. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Rubella  from 6,000 cases in 1989 to 131 in 2007. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Pertussis  from 4,000 cases in 1982 to 62 in 2007. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Data: ISD </li></ul></ul>

  17. 17. Barriers to Immunisation Uptake
  18. 18. Barriers to Immunisation Uptake <ul><li>Poor information/ misconceptions/ myths </li></ul><ul><li>Conflicting advice: family, media etc </li></ul><ul><li>Inconvenience: time, transport, lack of flexibility in system </li></ul><ul><li>Vaccine supply issues </li></ul>
  19. 19. Poor information/ misconceptions/ myths <ul><li>Misconceptions have always been around e.g </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Vaccines can give you the infection e.g ‘flu </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Multicomponent vaccines overload the immune system </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Giving vaccines singly is safer </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Risk from vaccine is worse than the infection – no-one dies these days from measles! </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>etc.etc.etc………….. </li></ul></ul>
  20. 21. Conflicting advice: family, media etc <ul><li>Provocative media headlines </li></ul><ul><ul><li>e.g “Autism: new risk in NHS vaccine” ( Scotsman 13 March 2004 ) </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Anecdotal parental reports of autism after MMR vaccination </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Emotional impact – creates confusion/ concern in parents </li></ul><ul><li>Once damage done is difficult to rectify despite evidence </li></ul>

  29. 31. Travel Vaccines
  30. 32. Travel Vaccination <ul><li>Increased risk of transmission of infectious disease due to dramatic  in global travel </li></ul><ul><li>Study revealed 67% of travellers to high/medium risk areas had not taken medical advice </li></ul><ul><li>Need consultation at least 1 month before travel </li></ul><ul><li>Are two compulsory vaccinations – yellow fever/ meningitis </li></ul>
  31. 33.
