Announcing the publication of the WHO immunological basis for immunization series module on influenza vaccines

In 2017, the World Health Organization (WHO) published a document aimed at facilitating influenza vaccine introduction and use in low- and middle-income countries. The document, “The Immunological Basis for Immunization Series: Influenza Vaccines”, is freely available on the WHO website. The main purpose of this document is to give immunization managers and vaccination professionals an authoritative but easily-understood overview of the scientific basis of influenza vaccination and the immunological basis for the WHO position on influenza vaccines. The influenza vaccine document comprises one module of the WHO Immunological Basis for Immunization series. The immunization community is invited to use these references; it is hoped that the influenza vaccine module will be a valuable resource for persons who manage and monitor influenza vaccine programs, particularly in low- and middle-income countries.

Influenza Vaccine Effectiveness in Preventing Influenza-associated Hospitalizations During Pregnancy: A Multi-country Retrospective Test Negative Design Study, 2010–2016

In this retrospective cohort of over 2 million pregnancies that researchers assembled from 2010 to 2016 across 5 regions in 4 countries, 84% of the pregnancies overlapped with an influenza season. Thus, the risk of influenza virus infection is relevant to most pregnant women.

Intranasal influenza vaccine: Why does Canada have different recommendations from the USA on its use?

Canada and the USA differ in their recommendations for the use of live attenuated influenza vaccine (LAIV). The Canadian National Advisory Committee on Immunization (NACI) continues to recommend LAIV as one of the influenza vaccines available for use in children 2 to 17 years of age. The US Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices made an interim recommendation against the use of LAIV for the 2016-2017 influenza season in response to low LAIV effectiveness observed in the USA during the 2013-2014 to 2015-2016 seasons. The recommendation has been continued for the 2017-2018 season. In response, NACI undertook a review of available LAIV effectiveness data in children and adolescents from Canada, the USA and a number of European countries. This commentary by Canada’s Chief Public Health Officer summarizes the findings of that review and provides the rationale for Canada’s current continued recommendation for LAIV use.
