Vaccines for women to prevent tetanus in newborn babies

Review question: Our review evaluated the existing evidence on immunisation with tetanus toxoid in women of reproductive age for the prevention of tetanus and death in newborn babies and to determine whether serious harms are associated with tetanus toxoid exposure.

Acellular vaccines for preventing whooping cough (pertussis) in children

We aimed to answer the question of whether acellular pertussis vaccines are as effective as the whole‐cell vaccines at protecting children against whooping cough (pertussis), but with fewer side effects.

Combined DTP‐HBV‐HIB vaccine versus separately administered DTP‐HBV and HIB vaccines in healthy infants up to two years old

Childhood vaccinations provide an effective method of protection against diseases. The World Health Organization (WHO) recommends that routine infant immunisation programmes include a vaccination against Haemophilus influenzae (H. influenza) type B (HIB) in the combined diphtheriatetanuspertussis (DTP)‐hepatitis B virus (HBV) vaccination. We compared the combined DTP‐HBV‐HIB vaccine with the separate DTP‐HBV and HIB vaccines. Studies only reported on immunogenicity and reactogenicity.

Can hexavalent vaccines be simultaneously administered with pneumococcal or meningococcal conjugate vaccines?

BACKGROUND: Local immunization programs may include hexavalent and conjugate pneumococcal or meningococcal vaccines administered in the same vaccination visit. Information based on evidence is necessary for correctly planning schedules and for parents who often fear the administration of too many vaccines. We reviewed the available literature to assess the effects on immunogenicity and safety of simultaneous administration of hexavalent and conjugate pneumococcal and meningococcal C vaccines in healthy children.

Needle size for vaccination procedures in children and adolescents

Vaccines contain antigens that make our immune system produce antibodies that can protect against disease. Antigens are modified or partial forms of the virus, bacteria, or the toxin that cause the disease that the vaccine protects against. Because the antigen is altered from its original form it cannot cause disease, but it can produce an immune response.

Systematic review of the effect of pneumococcal conjugate vaccine dosing schedules on immunogenicity

BACKGROUND: Despite the breadth of studies demonstrating benefits of pneumococcal conjugate vaccine (PCV), uncertainty remains regarding the optimal PCV dosing schedule in infants.

Outreach programmes for health improvement of Traveller Communities: a synthesis of evidence

The study found no evidence to suggest the requirement to develop Traveller-specific health services. Outreach can be used to develop the cultural sensitivity, accessibility and acceptability of mainstream services. Texting appointment reminders is unlikely to be expensive and might constitute the minimum acceptable action to facilitate access to health care. Appropriate payment for the registration of Traveller Community members by general practitioners might also improve access. Mobile clinics are associated with the highest costs reported, with little indication of their acceptability or cost-effectiveness. Evidence suggests that outreach is likely to be more effective when delivered by workers who share the recipients’ ethnicity.

Acetaminophen and ibuprofen for prevention of adverse reactions associated with childhood immunization

This review investigated use of acetaminophen and ibuprofen for prevention of adverse reactions associated with childhood immunisation. The authors concluded that acetaminophen and ibuprofen may prevent adverse events in young infants receiving diphtheria-tetanus toxoids-whole pertussis vaccine. No benefits were demonstrated for the diphtheria-tetanusoxides acellular pertussis vaccine. The conclusions may not be reliable due to methodological limitations.

Physical interventions and injection techniques for reducing injection pain during routine childhood immunizations: systematic review of randomized controlled trials and quasi-randomized controlled trials

The authors concluded that pain during childhood injection vaccination can be reduced by use of less painful brands of vaccine injections, positioning children upright and stroking the skin close to the injection site and performing intramuscular injections rapidly without aspiration. The authors’ conclusions were based on limited and generally poor-quality evidence and so their reliability is unclear.
