Vaccines: Pubs/VIS/News


  • TIV & PCV13 and febrile seizures. The 2011-12 inactivated influenza vaccine VIS contains a note about increased risk of febrile seizures when TIV and PCV13 are given simultaneously. Until a more detailed explanation is published on CDC's website, a brief note accessible from the VIS homepage (with the influenza vaccine download) or from here gives some information that providers can share with their patients about this issue. (8/26/11)
  • 2011-12 Influenza VISs are here. The only major change from last year (on the TIV VIS only) is the addition of a note in the "risks" section about concurrent administration of TIV and PCV13 and febrile seizures. References to H1N1 were removed from both VISs. The TIV "Large Print" edition is also available for 2011-12. (7/26/11)
  • 2011-2012 influenza VISs coming soon. After some unavoidable delays, the updated VISs should be available the week of July 25. (But no promises.) (7/21/11)
  • 2010-2011 inactivated influenza vaccine VIS LARGE TYPE version available. In response to a request from a thoughtul provider of flu vaccine to elderly patients, we have posted a large print version of the inactivated flu vaccine VIS. It occupies 4 pages, instead of the usual 2, but is otherwise identical to the standard edition. (10/29/10)
  • 2009 H1N1 VISs no longer available. All monovalent 2009 H1N1 vaccines have expired and should no longer be used. The VISs for these vaccines have been removed from the website. (9/30/10)
  • Translations. The 2010-11 influenza VISs are in the process of being translated into more than 20 languages. They will be posted on the IAC website ( as soon as they are completed. As of now, these languages will include Arabic, Armenian, Bengali, Cambodian, Chinese, Farsi, French, Haitian Creole, Hmong, Indonesian, Karen, Korean, Mandarin, Portuguese, Romanian, Russian, Somali, Spanish, Tagalog, Thai, Turkish, Urdu, and Vietnamese (8/26/10)
  • Influenza VISs are posted. At long last, the 2010-11 seasonal influenza VISs are available. AND . . . one day earlier than last year! We will keep the H1N1 VISs available as long as the vaccine is being used. (8/10/11)
