In Various Countries, Dengue Vaccines Are Authorized

(CTN News) – Dengue is an ongoing risk in Central and South America, Mexico, and the Caribbean. That was confirmed again by the U.S. government.

Tuesday, April 17, 2023, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) announced that it had reissued a Watch – Level 1, Practice Usual Precautions notice regarding various dengue outbreaks occurring across several countries across the Americas.

There was an original posting of this CDC travel alert on August 27, 2019.

There are also reports that the countries listed below are reporting higher-than-usual cases, and travelers to these countries may be at an increased risk if they travel there.

There is a possibility of infection becoming severe within a few hours, and severe is usually a medical emergency involving hospitalization.

As a result, over the years, the CDC has failed to highlight recent travel-related and locally-acquired dengue outbreaks, especially in Florida and Puerto Rico.

Dengue remains a health risk as of April 19, 2023 in Florida, one of the most populous states.

There were 61 travel-related cases confirmed during the year 2023, according to the Florida Health Department, while there were two locally acquired dengue cases confirmed during the same period, according to the Florida Health Department.

At the beginning of the year 2022, the Florida Department of Health in Miami-Dade County released an advisory, which confirmed the presence of (DENV-3), which was transmitted via mosquitoes.

Dengue cases in Florida in 2022 were reported as 903 travel-associated and 68 locally acquired cases, according to the Department of Health.

The number of dengue cases reported in 46 countries and territories across the Americas in 2022 was 2.8 million, which represents a two-fold increase over the number reported in 2021, when 1.2 million cases had been reported.

Vaccination is one of the tactics that can be used to reduce the number of infections.

It has been announced that two vaccines have been approved in a number of countries since October 30, 2022.

There is a consensus among the World Health Organization, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration, and the United Kingdom Medicines and Healthcare Products Regulatory Agency that dengue vaccines are recommended for certain individuals who reside in or visit dengue-risk areas.

Despite the fact that these dengue vaccines have various authorizations and restrictions, those who are interested in getting this type of protection are advised to get in touch with a travel vaccine specialist, who is often located in clinics and pharmacies all over the world.
