General | Latest Info

Before vaccines became available, infection with measles virus was nearly universal among US children and adolescents. More than 50% of children had measles by age 6, and more than 90% had measles by age 15. Encephalitis or Death occur in as many as 0. 2% of infected children, resulting in more than 500 deaths annually. First live attenuate Vaccine was licensed in the US in 1963. By late 1960s, US experienced more than 99% reduction in reported measles cases. In 2000, measles was declared eliminated from this country. Elimination Do not mean absence of cases. Rather, it refers to the absence of measles transmission among the general population for at least 12 months after infectious case is import. Since measles was declared eliminate, annual number of reported cases in this country has ranged from a low of 37 in 2004 to a high of 667 in 2014. However, as of April 11, 555 cases of measles have been report. In February 1998, Lancet published a report by Andrew Wakefield and co-workers at Royal Free College in London proposing a link between measles, mumps and rubella Vaccine and newly described syndrome of autism and bowel disease. Six years later, editors of Lancet describe allegations of serious misconduct by authors of the paper, including failure to disclose that Wakefield had significant financial conflict. The paper was retracted in 2010, and Wakefield lost his license to practice Medicine in the United Kingdom for unethical behavior, misconduct and dishonesty for authoring a fraudulent Research paper. Wakefields work is now recognized as elaborate fraud, but damage has been done. Wakefields erroneous claim that MMR Vaccine might be associated with autism lead to a decline in vaccination rates in many countries, including the United States. Wakefields continuing claim that Vaccine is harmful has resulted in a rise in measles. It also has contributed to a climate of distrust of all Vaccines and re-emergence of previously Control Diseases, resulting in harm to many children. Administration of second dose of measles-containing Vaccine should be administered only at 4 to 6 years of age. B between 2% and 5% of people do not develop measles immunity after the first dose of MMR. C in 1954, Enders and Peebles isolated the measles virus from the blood of a 13-year-old boy named David Edmonston during a measles outbreak in Boston, and isolate was transformed into Vaccine strain. D some people have memory of measles vaccination but no longer have written documentation, and this can be accepted as evidence of measles immunity. The only measles virus Vaccine available in the US is the live, more attenuated Edmonston-Enders strain. Only one antigenic type of measles virus has been identify. Antigenic changes on one surface protein h glycoprotein have been document, but this change has no impact on Vaccine efficacy. Vaccine is available combined with mumps and rubella Vaccines or with mumps, rubella and varicella vaccines.

Measles

Measles is an acute, highly contagious illness caused by a virus in the Family paramyxovirus, genus Morbillivirus. 2 Measles presents with symptoms of fever, malaise, cough, coryza, and conjunctivitis, followed by characteristic maculopapular rash and Koplik spots. 2 Disease was nearly universal during childhood in the United States prior to vaccination. 3 Approximately 500 000 cases and 500 deaths were reported annually in the United States before Vaccine was available. 3 in 1963, live Vaccine was licensed for use as single dose at age 9 months. With the exception of oral poliovirus strains, complication rates during the first year of life have been higher for other diseases when live vaccines were used compared to complication rates when live vaccines were given after the first birthday. 4 For this reason, in 1965, schedule was moved to administer Vaccine at 12 months of age. 5 challenges seen in the first few years after live Vaccine was developed were attributed to multiple factors. Simultaneous inoculation with-globulin, diminished potency caused by mishandled storage conditions, and persistence of passively acquiring maternal antibody, among others, were reported as causes of Vaccine failure. 6 in 1977, Yeager et al 7 show that children immunized at 13 to 14 months of age show higher antibody titers compared to children who had received their Measles Vaccine at 12 months or earlier. Albrecht et al 8 evaluates maternal transmission of Measles antibodies. They conducted a prospective study of thirty-four 12-month-old children and found that maternal Measles-neutralizing antibodies may persist up to and beyond 12 months of age. A Direct correlation of persisting levels of maternal antibody in infant and decreased response to immunization was observe. 8 With a growing body of evidence, ACIP recommend that the scheduled dose of Measles Vaccine be changed to 15 months. 6 in the mid-1980s, there still were concerns regarding maternal transmission of immunity against Measles in infants, especially in young mothers who had received Vaccine. Studies show that women born after 1956 were more likely to have Vaccine-induced immunity, transferring lower titers of Measles antibodies to their infants. 9 10 Additionally, maternal antibodies wan earlier, causing preterm infants to become susceptible to Measles at a younger age. 10 jenks et al 11 evaluates Measles antibody levels in children born to unvaccinated mothers at different gestational ages. Because most maternal antibodies are transferred to the fetus during the third trimester, these preterm infants are at particular risk of having low or even undetectable antibody titers by their first year of life and may benefit from earlier administration of Vaccine. Public health authorities acknowledge these cases were exceptions rather than the rule, therefore change in schedule was not warrant. They suggest that each patient should be evaluated independently, and early administration close to 12 months should be considered in those with highest risk. The Centers For Disease Control reported 6282 cases of Measles in 152 outbreaks from 1985 through 1986.


Considerations

Only two studies do not show lower case death among vaccinated children, and five of 18 studies in tables 2 and 3 show significantly lower mortality among vaccinated children. All studies with relevant data were included in tables 2 and 3 irrespective of whether vaccine efficacy against measles infection was high or substandard. In several studies, VE was not high, but nonetheless, vaccine appear to have had an effect; for example, in Kenya, VE was only 18% but measles-vaccinated children who developed measles had twofold lower measles mortality than measles-unvaccinated children. Only one community survey from Niger reported that MV was not particularly effective against measles infection and that there was no effect of vaccination on case death in measles infection. 42 in most studies, it was not possible to control for age, give way data was report. However, in six studies, age could be control. In these studies, crude MH weighted case death ratio was 0. 27; when comparison was stratify by age group, MH weighted case death ratio became 0. 30. It could be speculated that vaccinated children had more health-system-compliant mothers and that they therefore had more care and milder infection. However, in many of the original studies from 1980s, MV had been provided in community campaigns and not in routine service and vaccination status depended on whether the mother had been around at the time of campaign and not on bias. 32 in studies that adjust for background factors, differential effect of vaccination on measles case death actually increase. 32 37 Furthermore, several studies have found that vaccine failures occur after high intensity of exposure, that is, vaccine failures are more likely to be secondary cases exposed at home. 32 48 Since secondary cases have higher case death than index cases, 32 48 74 milder infection among vaccinated children is even more surprising. The possibility that measles-vaccinated children have milder disease due to modified immune responses and not merely due to social confounding is strengthened by many studies showing that measles vaccination is associated with beneficial effects on overall child survival. 53 54 several hospital-or health centre-base studies have also compared vaccinated and unvaccinated children and report that measles-vaccinate children had less severe measles infection. 75-77 few community studies from India and Papua New Guinea have also suggested lower case death for vaccinated measles cases. 78 79 if the severity of measles is not the same in vaccinated and unvaccinated children, it would strongly affect the estimated benefit of vaccinations at different ages.

MMR Immunization Schedule

MMR Vaccine has been successfully used by many developed countries in two dose schedule in preschool children to eliminate measles, mumps and Rubella from their population 1. In India, children are given measles Vaccine soon after completing 9 months of age considering large amount of morbidity and mortality caused by disease. Seroconversion for measles is slightly lower in children who receive the first dose before or at 12 months of age because of persisting maternal antibodies 2 3. Infants who receive MV before 12 months of age should be given two additional doses of measles antigen containing Vaccine at 12-15 months and 4-6 years of Age 2. As far as protection against mumps is concern, accumulated global experience has shown that 2 doses of mumps antigen containing Vaccine are required for long-lasting protection 4. RA27 / 3 Vaccine For Rubella is considered as highly efficacious and immunity following single dose is assumed to be life long, although Rubella antibodies may fall below detectable levels with time. Following administration of any Vaccine, apart from primary non-responders, some responders tend to lose their protective immunity over time, leading to secondary Vaccine failure. Over a period of time, a pool of susceptible children accumulates, including children who miss the opportunity of being vaccinated at first dose, serving as fertile ground for an epidemic to take place. Although MMR Vaccine is not part of the national Immunization Schedule of India, it was introduced in the State Immunization programme of Delhi in1999 as a single dose between 15-18 months. The Indian Academy of Pediatrics recommends measles Vaccine at 9 months of age. They also recommend offering MMR Vaccine to all parents who can afford it a two dose schedule, one at 15-18 months and the second at school entry 5. The Two dose MMR programme has also been recommended jointly by the American Academy of Pediatrics and the Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices in USA 6. We undertake this study to assess the percentage of children having seroprotective levels of antibodies against measles, mumps and Rubella in immunized children in Delhi Age 4-6 yr and to study seroresponse to second dose of MMR.


Who Should Get MMR Vaccine?

The CDC recommends all children get two doses of MMR vaccine, starting with the first dose at 12 through 15 months of age, and the second dose at 4 through 6 years of age. Children can receive second dose earlier as long as it is at least 28 days after the first dose. The MMR vaccine is given later than some other childhood vaccines because antibodies transferred from mother to baby can provide some protection from disease and make the MMR vaccine less effective until about 1 year of age. Learn about the MMRV vaccine, which protects against measles, Mumps, Rubella, and varicella. This vaccine is only licensed for use in children who are 12 months through 12 years of age.

Background

Measles is a highly contagious viral infection that frequently causes severe flu-like illness accompanied by rash. Complications occur in 3 in 10 WHO get Measles and young children are especially vulnerable. 1. Ear infections and diarrhea are the most common, but 1 in 20 will get pneumonia; 1 in 1 000 will have brain swelling that can cause deafness and intellectual disability; and 1 or 2 in 1 000 will die. 1 Before Vaccine was available in 1963, nearly every child get Measles by age 15. 2 Disease sicken 3 to 4 million people and leads to about 500 deaths and 48 000 hospitalizations every year. The growth of anti-Vaccine propaganda is threatening our protection against this frightening illness, leading to local outbreaks of Measles coast to coast. Outbreaks relating to vaccine hesitancy are in fact occurring worldwide, leading the World Health Organization to name vaccine hesitancy as one of the top 10 threats to Global Health. 3 Infectious Diseases Society of America is committed to helping parents understand that Vaccine that prevents Measles, mumps and Rubella, or MMR, is safe and effective and vital to public health. To help you feel confident about vaccinating your child, IDSA explains why the following myths are false: other than death, Measles causes serious illness and leads to hospitalization for 1 in 4 WHO become sick. That is why it is important to look at the reduction in Measles illness overall, which plummeted after Vaccine was introduce-from about 600 000 reported cases yearly in mid-1950s to little over 100 reported cases in 2001. Recently, those numbers have been increasing due to local outbreaks.


Who Should Get MMR Vaccine?

People 6 months of age and older who will be traveling internationally should be protected against measles. Before any international travel, infants from 6 through 11 months of age should receive one dose of MMR vaccine. Infants who get one dose of MMR vaccine before their first birthday should get two more doses. Children 12 months of age and older should receive two doses of MMR vaccine, separate by at least 28 days. Teenagers and adults who do not have presumptive evidence of immunity against measles should get two doses of MMR vaccine separate for at least 28 days. See also, Travel Information

Results

Of 67 studies reporting on one-dose immunogenicity, 19 fulfil criteria to be included in meta-analysis. Seroconversion was lower in infants with MCV1 < 9 months than in children vaccinated at 12 months, with RRs of 0. 74 0. 65 and 0. 99 according to definition of seroconversion fourfold increase in titers, seropositivity among seronegative pre-vaccination or both criteria. Heterogeneity found in these comparisons was not explained by predefined factors. Only RCT for this outcome reported 99% seroconversion for children vaccinated at 8 or 12 months. Vaccination at 9-11 months versus 12 months yielded similar pool RR of seroconversion for 3 subgroup analyses, with an overall RR of 0. 93. Two RCTs included in this analysis report similar results: RR = 0. 89 and RR = 0. 92, respectively. Finally, MCV1 at 15 months induced 3% higher seroconversion risk compared to 12 months, similar to only RCT. Evidence from experimental studies including in one-dose serological analysis was rat as moderate, based on study design, consistency, low to moderate risk of bias, and dose response. Sensitivity analysis including only studies at low risk of bias found similar results. Vaccination at 6 months induces lower seroconversion compared with 9 months. However, there was significant heterogeneity for all sub-analyses, not explained by predefined effect modifiers. Seropositivity after MCV2 was reported in 3 RCT and 4 Non-RCT. 3 RCT found high seropositivity in all two-dose recipients. It varies from 95 to 100% for the first dose administered at 4-5 8, 9 11 or 12 months. Only Vesikari et al. Find significant difference between MCV1 at 9 and 12 months. Large Non-RCT found increasing seropositivity with older age at MCV1, from 80% for MCV1 at 7-8 months to 96% for MCV1 at 10-11 months. Three Non-RCT showed similar seropositivity risk for MCV1 at 6 versus 9 months or inconsistent results but the number of participants was small.

Discussion

Unlike Britain, United States, and virtually all other countries, Netherlands and Sweden had successfully controlled polio with Salks inactivate Vaccine and had not switched to Sabin Vaccine. Influence by this experience, vaccinologists in both countries had a clear initial preference for inactivated Measles Vaccine. As Sven Gard, professor of virology at Karolinska Institute in Stockholm, told an international conference on Measles Vaccine in 1964, gards research assistant and later successor Erling Norrby had started research on inactivated Measles vaccines in 1959. Whereas Pfizer Vaccine was grown in culture of monkey kidney cells, Norrby uses dog kidney cells and, crucially, different inactivation method. Rather than using formalin as researchers in the United States were doing, Norrby inactivate virus with organic solvent, Tween 80 and diethyl ether. This treatment causes disintegration of virus, and Swedish researchers objective was Measles Vaccine consisting only of purified hemagglutinin. 44 expectation was that this process would remove sensibilizing agents responsible for strange reactions observed in the United States. Tests in Guinea pigs show that vaccines inactivated in this way were three to four times more potent than were those inactivated With formalin. A series of studies designed to analyze possible usefulness of killed Measles Vaccine for elimination of Measles begins in Sweden. In 1965, Norrby justified working on inactivated virus Vaccine by referring to earlier experiences with polio vaccines: in initial study, Swedish children WHO had previously received three monthly doses of Pfizer inactivate Vaccine were revaccinated 22 to 23 months later, either with fourth dose or with new TE-inactivate preparation. They were then followed for a further 8 months and then tested after 18 months and after 29 months. In the second study, children were given either three monthly doses of formalin-inactivated Vaccine plus booster of TE Vaccine 17 months later, or they were given three monthly doses of TE Vaccine and, again, TE booster after 17 months. 46 of these children were followed for three years after the final booster. However, by 1969, despite theoretical advantages, earlier promise seemed not to bear out. Antibodies induced by kill virus Vaccine seem to be of low protective value, and it was becoming clear that intact surface antigens other than hemagglutinin would have to be included in kill virus Vaccine. It was not know what these were or how they should be isolate. Norrby et al. To Conclude, in the present situation inactivated Measles vaccines cannot be recommended for general use. 47 48 in 1971, Sweden began mass Measles Immunization Using live Vaccine. Like their Swedish colleagues, Dutch investigators prefer inactivated Vaccine. In the Netherlands too, polio has been successfully controlled with IPV. 49 this was do by adding IPV to diphtheria-pertussis-tetanus Vaccine already in use, thereby avoiding disruption of the National Immunization Program. The Countrys high Immunization rate was attributed to simplicity of Immunization schedule use.

THERAPEUTIC DILEMMA

The concerned mother posed following question to her pharmacist. She had recently taken her 15-month-old son to his pediatrician for his well-child check-up. He had received his first dose of measles-mumps-rubella Vaccine at 12 months of age. The physician had discussed with the mother the possibility of offering her son his second dose at 15 months, instead of waiting until 4 to 5 years of age as recommended by the Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices. She said her pediatrician told her Vaccine does not wear off, but the second dose is given because some children are non-responders when Vaccine is initially administered at 11 or 12 months of age. The only way to tell whether a child is a non-responder would be to draw blood for antibody titer. The physician explained that if her son were to experience needle-stick, child might as well receive Vaccination. His rationale for offering Vaccine at an earlier time than currently scheduled is based on the outbreak of measles in 2011. Thirteen cases were Report in Utah, where 9 children older than 5 years had not been vaccinated and had contracted measles by traveling abroad and importing infection home or through contact at home or school with child returning from travel. 1 physician noted that this scenario is not uncommon; therefore, he offered second MMR earlier to provide appropriate protection in case the child is a non-responder and happens to be exposed during the interval between first and second vaccinations. Concern mother declined the second dose and sought another opinion. She told the pharmacist that her son had other immunizations scheduled in upcoming months and wanted to know whether it would be appropriate for him to get a second MMR dose sooner than typical school-entry Immunization. How would you respond to mother's queries, and what recommendations would you make regarding deviation from ACIP guidelines?

Who Should Get MMR Vaccine?

MMR Vaccine is very effective at protecting people against measles, Mumps, and Rubella, and preventing complications caused by these diseases. People who receive two doses of MMR Vaccine as children according to the US vaccination schedule are usually considered protected for life and dont need booster dose. An Additional dose may be needed if you are at risk because of a Mumps outbreak. One dose of MMR Vaccine is 93% effective against measles, 78% effective against Mumps, and 97% effective against Rubella. Two doses of MMR Vaccine are 97% effective against measles and 88% effective against Mumps. MMR is attenuate LIVE virus Vaccine. This means that after injection, viruses cause harmless infection in vaccinated person with very few, if any, symptoms before they are eliminated from the body. A person's immune system fights infection caused by these weakened viruses, and immunity develops. Some people who get two doses of MMR Vaccine may still get measles, Mumps, or Rubella if they are exposed to viruses that cause these diseases. Experts are sure why; it could be that their immune systems do respond as well as they should have to Vaccine or their immune systems ' ability to fight infection decrease over time. However, disease symptoms are generally milder in vaccinated people. About 3 out of 100 people who get two doses of MMR Vaccine will get measles if exposed to the virus. However, they are more likely to have milder illness, and are also less likely to spread disease to other people. Two doses of MMR Vaccine are 88% effective at preventing Mumps. Mumps outbreaks can still occur in highly vaccinated US communities, particularly in settings where people have close, prolonged contact, such as universities and close-knit communities. During an outbreak, public health authorities may recommend additional doses of MMR for people who belong to groups at increased risk for Mumps. An additional dose can help improve protection against Mumps disease and related complications. While there are not many studies available, most people who do not respond to the Rubella component of the first MMR dose would be expected to respond to the second dose.

What is MMRV Vaccine?

Measles is a very contagious disease caused by a virus. It spread through the air when an infected person coughs or sneezes. Measles starts with a cough, runny nose, red eyes, and fever. Then a rash of tiny, red spots breaks out. It starts in the head and spreads to the rest of the body. Measles can be prevented with MMR Vaccine. Vaccine protects against three diseases: measles, mumps, and rubella. The CDC recommends children get two doses of MMR Vaccine, starting with the first dose at 12 through 15 months of age, and the second dose at 4 through 6 years of age. Teens and adults should also be up to date on their MMR vaccination. MMR Vaccine is very safe and effective. Two doses of MMR Vaccine are about 97% effective at preventing measles; one dose is about 93% effective. Children may also get MMRV Vaccine, which protects against measles, mumps, rubella, and varicella. This Vaccine is only licensed for use in children who are 12 months through 12 years of age. Before the measles vaccination program started in 1963, estimated 3 to 4 million people get measles each year in the United States. Of these, approximately 500 000 cases were reported each year to CDC; of these, 400 to 500 died, 48 000 were hospitalize, and 1 000 developed encephalitis from measles. Since then, widespread use of measles virus-containing Vaccine has led to a greater than 99% reduction in measles cases compared with the pre-Vaccine era. However, measles is still common in other countries. Unvaccinated people continue to get measles while abroad and bring the disease into the United States and spread it to others.


Who Should Get MMR Vaccine?

You do not need measles, Mumps, and Rubella vaccine if you meet any of these criteria for presumptive evidence of immunity: You have to write documentation of adequate vaccination: at least one dose of measles, Mumps, and Rubella virus-containing vaccine administered on or after first birthday for preschool-age children and adults not at high risk for exposure and transmission two doses of measles and Mumps virus-containing vaccine for school-age children and adults at high risk for exposure and transmission, including college students, healthcare personnel, international travelers, and groups at increase risk during outbreaks You have laboratory confirmation of past infection or had blood tests that show You are immune to measles, Mumps, and Rubella. You were born before 1957. * If you do not have presumptive evidence of immunity against measles, Mumps, and Rubella, talk with your doctor about getting vaccinate. If youre unsure whether youve been vaccinate, you should first try to find your vaccination records. If you do not have written documentation of the MMR vaccine, you should get vaccinate. The MMR vaccine is safe, and there is no harm in getting another dose if you may already be immune to measles, Mumps, or Rubella. If you received measles vaccine in the 1960s, you may not need to be revaccinated. People who have documentation of receiving LIVE measles vaccine in the 1960s do not need to be revaccinated. People who were vaccinated prior to 1968 with either inactivated measles vaccine or measles vaccine of unknown type should be revaccinated with at least one dose of LIVE attenuated measles vaccine. This recommendation is intended to protect those who may have received kill measles vaccine, which was available in 1963-1967 and was not effective.

Educational Materials

The CDC recommends that people get MMR Vaccine to protect against Measles, Mumps, and Rubella. Children should get two doses of MMR Vaccine, starting with the first dose at 12 to 15 months of age, and the second dose at 4 through 6 years of age. Teens and adults should also be up to date on their MMR vaccination. Children may also get MMRV Vaccine, which protects against Measles, Mumps, Rubella, and Varicella.

MMR at 1 year

MMRV Vaccine protects against four diseases: measles, mumps, rubella, and varicella. This Vaccine is only licensed for use in children 12 months through 12 years of age. The CDC recommends that children get one dose of MMRV Vaccine at 12 through 15 months of age, and a second dose at 4 through 6 years of age. Children can receive a second dose of MMRV Vaccine earlier than 4 to 6 years. This second dose of MMRV Vaccine can be given 3 months after the first dose. A doctor can help parents decide whether to use this Vaccine or MMR Vaccine. MMRV is given by shot and may be given at the same time as other vaccines. Please see the MMRV Vaccine Information Statement for more information about who should not get MMRV Vaccine or should wait.


MMR (Measles Mumps Rubella) vaccine

In Canada, children get two doses of MMR vaccine: first shot is given at 12 to 15 months of age. The second shot is given at 18 months or between the ages of 4 and 6 years. It is safe to give second MMR shot as soon as one month after the first MMR shot, if needed In many provinces, chickenpox vaccine is combined with the MMR vaccine. If your child is between 6 and 12 months old and you live or are travelling to an area that has know measles outbreak, talk to your childs doctor about getting an early dose of MMR vaccine. Keep in mind that your baby will still need to get her regular MMR shot when she is 12 months old. Older children and adults born before 1970 and who have not been vaccinated or have not had these infections should also be vaccinate.
