Ixiaro for pediatric use

Per Dr. Fischer at the CDC’s arboviral diseases branch:  FDA licensed inactivated Vero cell culture-derived vaccine was licensed for use in children aged ≥2 months in May 2013 and ACIP approved recommendations at the June meeting.  I do not know when the MMWR will be published but there is a brief announcement on the CDC Traveler’s Health webpage at http://wwwnc.cdc.gov/travel/news-announcements/japanese-encephalitis-vaccine-for-us-children and the slides from the ACIP meeting are available at http://www.cdc.gov/vaccines/acip/meetings/slides-jun-2013.html.
