Disaster recovery information : interim immunization recommendations for individuals displaced by a disaster
Filetype[PDF-96.82 KB]


Details:
  • Description:
    The purpose of these recommendations is two-fold: 1. To ensure that children, adolescents, and adults are protected against vaccine- preventable diseases in accordance with current recommendations. Immunization records are unlikely to be available for a large number of adult and child evacuees. It is important that immunizations are kept current if possible. 2. To reduce the likelihood of outbreaks of vaccine-preventable diseases in large crowded group settings. Hepatitis A incidence is low in the United States; therefore, evacuees housed temporarily in congregate settings should not need hepatitis A vaccine unless they have been evacuated from an area where exposure to hepatitis A virus is likely or have been exposed to persons with suspected or proven hepatitis A infection. Persons who evacuate their homes under orderly conditions at the advisement of state or local officials to a congregate setting where sanitary conditions prevail should not require hepatitis A vaccine. vaccrecdisplaced.pdf
