Title: Update on Vaccines

Update on Vaccines
  • Kimberly A. Kendall, PharmD
  • St. Elizabeth Regional Health
  • June 2007

  • Discuss the history of vaccines.
  • Discuss different types of vaccines.
  • Identify different vaccines that are available on
    the market.
  • Identify the various vaccines that we carry at
    our facilities.
  • Identify appropriate vaccine doses for patients
    of different ages.

  • The introduction of vaccines has led to a
    significant decline in worldwide morbidity and
    mortality due to various diseases.
  • Vaccines have been shown to be generally safe
    and cost-effective.
  • Vaccines trick the immune system into producing
    antibodies or immune cells that protect against
    disease-causing organisms.

  • 1796- Edward Jenner, an English physician,
    observed that milkmaids stricken with cowpox
    rarely became infected with smallpox.
  • This led to the development of first vaccine.
  • He inoculated a young, healthy child with fluid
    from a cowpox pustule.
  • He later inoculated the child with fluid from a
    smallpox pustule.
  • The child remained disease free.

  • By 1980, an updated version of Jenners vaccine
    led to the eradication of smallpox
  • By the beginning of the 20th century, vaccines
    for rabies, diphtheria, typhoid fever and plague
    in addition to smallpox vaccine had been
  • We now have vaccines against more than 20
    infectious diseases.

Types of Vaccines
  • Weakened microbes
  • Killed microbes
  • Inactivated toxins
  • Subunit vaccines
  • Conjugate vaccines
  • Vaccines from biotechnology

Weakened Microbes
  • Live microbes weakened by growing them for many
    generations in animals or tissue cultures
  • Inoculated into humans to provide protection from
    disease causing microbes
  • Ex Oral Polio Vaccine, Mumps, Measles, Rubella,

Killed Microbes
  • Derived from whole organisms that have been
  • Do not cause disease in people who receive them,
    but they can stimulate the immune system
  • Ex Polio and Influenza

Inactivated Toxins
  • Some bacteria cause disease by producing toxins
    that invade the bloodstream
  • Inactivated toxins are used to prevent the same
  • Ex Tetanus and Diphtheria

Subunit Vaccines
  • Use only part of a bacterium or virus
  • Produce effective immune response without
    creating a separate and potentially harmful
    immune reaction to the other antigens on the
  • Ex Typhoid and Hepatitis B

Conjugate Vaccines
  • Bacteria that cause certain diseases have an
    outer coat that cannot be recognized by the
    immature immune systems of infants
  • These vaccines link together proteins or
    inactivated toxins from a second organism to the
    outer coat of the bacteria
  • Allows the immune system to respond to the
    combined vaccine and produce antibodies
  • Ex Haemophilus Influenza Type B

Vaccines from Biotechnology
  • Made by altering an organisms genetic structure
    by cutting out a key gene
  • Allows the organism to produce immunity but not
  • Can also insert a gene into an organisms genetic
    material,causing it to mass produce foreign
    proteins or antigens which can induce an immune
  • DNA is removed from an organism and modified so
    that it contains only a fragment of the original
    genetic material
  • When put into humans, the body generates antigens
    to protect against disease

Edible Vaccines
  • Edible vaccines have been developed to produce an
    immune response to E. coli bacterium and Norwalk
  • Potatoes, bananas, and tomatoes have been
    genetically engineered to initiate an immune
    response when eaten

Vaccine Administration
  • SQ injections
  • Thigh of infants
  • Deltoid area of older children and adults
  • IM injections
  • Upper thigh of infants and toddlers
  • Deltoid muscle of arm for children and adults
  • The buttock should not be used
  • Potential for inadequate response
  • Potential risk of injury to sciatic nerve.
  • Must be used for large doses of immunoglobulin.
    Use only the upper, outer quadrant.

Special Populations
  • Age of the recipient is a determining factor in
    vaccine and toxoid response.
  • In the first few months of life, passive immunity
    from the mother protects an infant and prevents
    adequate vaccine response to certain agents.
  • Premature infants should be vaccinated at the
    same chronologic age using the same schedule and
    precautions as full-term infants.
  • The full doses should be given regardless of age
    or birth weight. ( Hepatitis B vaccine should be
    given if the infant is 2,000 g or held until 2
    months old.)

Special Populations
  • Administration of live, attenuated vaccines
    should be avoided during pregnancy.
  • Inactivated vaccines should not be given until
    the 2nd trimester. (However, they have not been
    shown to be teratogenic during the first
  • Administration of rubella vaccine during
    pregnancy is not a reason to interrupt pregnancy.

Special Populations
  • Diphtheria and tetanus vaccination should be
    carried out per usual schedule during pregnancy.
  • Hepatitis B, inactivated polio and pneumococcal
    vaccines are all recommended during pregnancy, if
  • Pregnant women in 2nd or 3rd trimester during flu
    season should get flu vaccine.

National Vaccine Injury Compensation Act (NVICA)
  • Passed in 1986.
  • Outlines compensation for vaccine-related
    injuries and limits size of awards to injured
  • Frees manufacturers from liability if adequate
    warnings for vaccines are provided.
  • Health care providers and manufacturers must
    report adverse reactions to vaccines to the FDA
    within 7 days of occurrence.

National Vaccine Injury Compensation Act (NVICA)
  • Mandatory record keeping by health care providers
    in the permanent medical record (the manufacturer
    and lot number, date of administration, and name,
    address, and title of the person giving the
    vaccine must be recorded).
  • Also mandates that healthcare providers report to
    their health department or the FDA any adverse
  • Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System (VAERS)
  • Policy at St Elizabeth Regional Health
