New position papers 23-valent pneumococcal
polysaccharide vaccine
  • Broad review of available data
  • Results show protective effect against IPD and
    all-cause-pneumonia among healthy young adults
  • Lesser degree of protection against IPD in
    individuals aged gt65 years.
  • HOWEVER overall data on the efficacy and
    effectiveness of PPV23 for other age groups are
  • Failed to demonstrate efficacy against IPD or
    all-cause pneumonia in individuals with
    immunocompromising conditions
  • In resource-limited settings, the evidence does
    not support routine immunization of the elderly
    and high-risk populations with PPV23 higher
    priority to infant PCV7
  • In low-income countries, WHO recommends the
    additional use of other measures that help
    prevent pneumococcal disease
  • Need for more efficacious conjugated vaccines or
    other types of vaccines covering the majority of
    the pneumococcal serotypes

New position paper Typhoid vaccine (live, oral
Ty21a and injectable Vi polysaccharide)
  • Annual global incidence of typhoid fever at 21
    million cases, 14 fatal 90 of these deaths
    occur in Asia.
  • Two new-generation typhoid vaccines Countries
    should consider the programmatic use of typhoid
    vaccines for controlling endemic disease
  • Most countries vaccination only of high-risk
    groups and populations
  • Decisions whether to initiate programmatic use of
    typhoid vaccines should be based on local
  • Subpopulations at particular risk
  • Age-specific incidence rates
  • Sensitivity of the prevailing S. Typhi strains to
    relevant antimicrobial drugs
  • Cost effectiveness

New position paper Typhoid vaccine
  • Choice of vaccine, choice of delivery strategy
    and choice of target age group depends on local
    immunization programme capacity and other
    logistic and cultural factors
  • Vaccination recommended for
  • Outbreak control
  • Travellers to destinations where the risk of
    typhoid fever is high
  • Improved vaccines against typhoid fever are
  • All typhoid fever vaccination programmes should
    be implemented in the context of other efforts to
    control the disease
