VAXNEUVANCE helps protect against pediatric invasive pneumococcal disease (IPD)

VAXNEUVANCE provides robust immunogenicity, including coverage for key disease-causing serotypes 3, 22F, and 33F.1,2

Why choose VAXNEUVANCE?

Comparable immune response to PCV13 for 12 shared serotypes following a 4-dose series*

Superior immune response for shared serotype 3a and unique serotypes 22F and 33F following a 4-dose series; 22F and 33F are not covered in PCV133,*

Can be given with other routinely administered vaccines (including Pentacel, RECOMBIVAX HB®, RotaTeq®, M-M-R®II, VAQTA®, VARIVAX®, and Hiberix)

Brands mentioned are trademarks of their respective owners.

Can seamlessly switch from PCV13 at any point in the vaccination series3,b

Randomized controlled trials assessing the clinical efficacy of VAXNEUVANCE compared to PCV13 have not been conducted.

aAt 30 days post dose 4, IgG GMC Ratio vs PCV13, 1.43 (95% CI: 1.30, 1.57).

bDose 1 of either PCV is given at 2 months, Dose 2 at 4 months, Dose 3 at 6 months, and Dose 4 at 12-15 months. See Dosage and Administration tab for additional information.

*Study Design

Study 8 was a pivotal, double-blind, active comparator-controlled study in which participants were randomized to receive VAXNEUVANCE (N=860) or PCV13 (N=860) in a 4-dose series. The first 3 doses were administered to infants at 2, 4, and 6 months of age and the fourth dose was administered to children at 12 through 15 months of age. Participants also received other licensed pediatric vaccines concomitantly. Immune responses were measured by IgG response rates, IgG GMCs, and OPA GMTs for all 15 serotypes contained in VAXNEUVANCE.

CI, confidence interval; GMC, geometric mean concentration (mcg/mL); GMT, geometric mean titer; IgG, Immunoglobulin G; OPA, opsonophagocytic activity; PCV, pneumococcal conjugate vaccine; PCV13, 13-valent pneumococcal conjugate vaccine.

Indication for VAXNEUVANCE

VAXNEUVANCE is indicated for active immunization for the prevention of invasive disease caused by Streptococcus pneumoniae serotypes 1, 3, 4, 5, 6A, 6B, 7F, 9V, 14, 18C, 19A, 19F, 22F, 23F, and 33F in individuals 6 weeks of age and older.

Select Safety Information for VAXNEUVANCE

Do not administer VAXNEUVANCE to individuals with a severe allergic reaction (eg, anaphylaxis) to any component of VAXNEUVANCE or to diphtheria toxoid.

Some individuals with altered immunocompetence, including those receiving immunosuppressive therapy, may have a reduced immune response to VAXNEUVANCE.

Apnea following intramuscular vaccination has been observed in some infants born prematurely. Vaccination of premature infants should be based on the infant’s medical status and the potential benefits and possible risks.

The most commonly reported solicited adverse reactions in children vaccinated at 2, 4, 6, and 12 through 15 months of age, provided as a range across the 4-dose series, were: irritability (57.3% to 63.4%), somnolence (24.2% to 47.5%), injection-site pain (25.9% to 40.3%), fever ≥38.0°C (13.3% to 20.4%), decreased appetite (14.1% to 19.0%), injection-site induration (13.2% to 15.4%), injection-site erythema (13.7% to 21.4%), and injection-site swelling (11.3% to 13.4%).

The most commonly reported solicited adverse reactions in children 2 through 17 years of age vaccinated with a single dose were: injection-site pain (54.8%), myalgia (23.7%), injection-site swelling (20.9%), injection-site erythema (19.2%), fatigue (15.8%), headache (11.9%), and injection-site induration (6.8%).

The reported solicited adverse reactions in children 7 through 11 months of age who received 3 doses of VAXNEUVANCE were: fever ≥38.0°C (21.9%), irritability (32.8%), injection-site erythema (28.1%), somnolence (21.9%), injection-site swelling (18.8%), injection-site pain (18.8%), injection-site induration (17.2%), decreased appetite (15.6%), and urticaria (1.6%).

The reported solicited adverse reactions in children 12 through 23 months of age who received 2 doses of VAXNEUVANCE were: fever ≥38.0°C (11.3%), irritability (35.5%), injection-site pain (33.9%), somnolence (24.2%), decreased appetite (22.6%), injection-site erythema (21.0%), injection-site swelling (14.5%), and injection-site induration (8.1%).

Vaccination with VAXNEUVANCE may not protect all vaccine recipients.
