Japanese Encephalitis And The New Vaccine Recommendations

Japanese encephalitis (JE) virus, a mosquitoborne flavivirus, is the most common vaccine-preventable cause of encephalitis in Asia.

Recently, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) published updated recommendations from it’s Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices (ACIP) for the JE vaccine.

Joining me today to discuss JE, the vaccine, travel and the updated recommendations is Susan Hills, MBBS. Dr. Hills is with the National Center for Emerging and Zoonotic Infectious Diseases with the CDC.
