Adacel is not funded in New Zealand. As with any medicine, very rarely a severe allergic reaction anaphylaxis can occur following immunisation. It is not funded in New Zealand but may be purchased as an alternative vaccine to Boostrix. It is used for primary vaccination out of licensure as there is no alternative primary adaecl strength vaccine available in New Zealand for these age groups.
When the vaccine is used for a primary vaccination course use will be outside of current licensure and individuals need to be aracel of this. No safety concerns are expected with use in these circumstances.
Adults requiring a boost of their pertussis immunity e. A single dose of vaccine is usually enough to boost existing immunity to pertussis whether the adult has had a primary course of three pertussis containing vaccine doses in the past, or not as adults are expected to have had exposure to the disease in the community.
However, past exposure to pertussis cannot be guaranteed for every individual.
Three doses of diphtheria and tetanus vaccines are required packag protection as exposure to these two diseases will not occur and therefore there will be no immunity to booster with a single dose adacrl vaccine. Contracting tetanus does not confer immunity. Shake well to uniformly distribute the suspension before use.
Adacel can be administered concurrently with other vaccines, including all National Immunisation Schedule vaccines. Separate syringes and different injection sites should be used.
The vaccine should be administered intramuscularly. The preferred site is into the deltoid muscle. Unvaccinated children from seven years of age and adults are expected to have some immunity to pertussis from exposure to the disease in the community.
A single dose of Adacel is expected boost their existing protection to pertussis. However, a single dose of Adacel will not provide protection against tetanus and diphtheria in a previously unvaccinated person. After administration of Adacel to individuals aged 11—64 years who had previously completed a primary course of tetanus, diphtheria and pertussis vaccines 9 out of 10 individuals demonstrated protection against tetanus and diphtheria.
Individuals also demonstrated boosted immune responses to the pertussis components. However, studies have not yet established a correlation between serology results and protection against pertussis. It is expected that immunisation does reduce carriage of the Bordetella pertussis bacterium and the associated disease.
There is no published information on the effectiveness of Adacel when it is used for apckage primary immunisation course.
However, based on the general principles of the human immune response to vaccination, a primary course of three Adacel vaccines packgae expected to result in protection from tetanus, diphtheria and pertussis.
After vaccination protection from pertussis lasts for 4—6 years after the disease protection lasts 10—15 years. Skip to main content.
