Valneva: US authority recommends chikungunya vaccine |

02/29/2024, 2049 characters

The US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices (ACIP) has determined to recommend Valneva’s single-dose chikungunya vaccine IXCHIQ® for the prevention of chikungunya virus disease. Juan Carlos Jaramillo, Chief Medical Officer of Valneva commented: “Chikungunya poses a significant risk to individuals traveling to or living in regions where the chikungunya virus and the mosquitoes that transmit it are common. IXCHIQ® offers benefits for travelers, for those on vacation or visiting family, as well as for people conducting business, missions, or laboratory work. We welcome the ACIP recommendation identifying IXCHIQ® as the only approved and recommended vaccine for the target population. We will “We will continue to work with regulatory authorities worldwide to enable access to IXCHIQ® in all regions.”

The ACIP recommendations will be forwarded to the Director of the CDC and the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services for review and approval. Once approved, final recommendations will be published in a future Morbidity and Mortality Weekly Report (MMWR) to inform healthcare providers on appropriate use of the vaccine.

ACIP recommends IXCHIQ® for individuals ≥18 years of age traveling to a country or area experiencing a chikungunya outbreak. In addition, it may be considered for individuals traveling to a country or area without an outbreak but with evidence of CHIKV transmission within the last five years and who are >65 years of age and are expected to have at least moderate exposure to mosquitoes (at least two weeks, cumulative), or who are traveling for a longer period of time (six months or more, cumulative). The ACIP also recommends chikungunya vaccination for laboratory workers who may be exposed to the chikungunya virus.
