Complications of herpes zoster in immunocompetent older adults: Incidence in vaccine and placebo groups in two large phase 3 trials

An adjuvanted herpes zoster (HZ) subunit vaccine, HZ/su, demonstrated high efficacy against HZ and postherpetic neuralgia (PHN) in two randomized, observer-blind, placebo-controlled trials in adults aged >50 and >70 years (ZOE-50 and ZOE-70, respectively). Data from ZOE-50 and ZOE-70 trials were analyzed to evaluate the efficacy of HZ/su against
mortality, hospitalizations, and non-PHN complications of HZ including HZ-associated vasculitis, stroke, and disseminated, ophthalmic, neurologic, and visceral diseases.

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.
