A Continuation of Assessment of the Impact of Prevnar 13 on Invasive Pneumococcal Disease Caused by Vaccine Serotypes of Streptococcus pneumoniae After Introduction Into Routine Pediatric and Adult Use for the Period of May 2015 - April 2020

This project will estimate Prevnar 13 (PCV13) vaccine effectiveness against invasive pneumococcal disease using a test-negative design in the Kaiser Permanente Northern California adult population from September 1, 2014, through December 31, 2017. Positive cases will be defined as patients with invasive pneumococcal disease where serotype 3 is identified. Test-negative controls will be defined as patients with invasive pneumococcal disease where a non-PCV serotype is identified. As a sensitivity analysis, the vaccine effectiveness of Prevnar 13 against invasive pneumococcal disease caused by serotype 3 will also be compared with the vaccine effectiveness of 23-valent pneumococcal polysaccharide vaccine (PPV23) serotypes against invasive pneumococcal disease. In addition, invasive pneumococcal disease cases will be compared with the entire Kaiser Permanente Northern California adult population with similar characteristics matched on age, race, sex, and calendar time to better understand vaccination rates among different serotypes.

Statistical Analysis Studies Comparing Flucelvax to Egg-Based Influenza Vaccinations

This study has three primary aims: 1) to estimate the relative vaccine effectiveness of Flucelvax versus inactivated influenza vaccine (IIV) in vaccinated Kaiser Permanente Northern California members aged 4 to 64 years against all PCR-confirmed influenza A5; 2) to estimate the vaccine effectiveness of Flucelvax against all PCR-confirmed influenza A, comparing Flucelvax vaccinees versus unvaccinated in Kaiser Permanente Northern California members aged 4 to 64 years; and 3) to estimate the vaccine effectiveness of IIV (not including Flucelvax) against all PCR-confirmed influenza A, comparing IIV vaccinees versus unvaccinated Kaiser Permanente Northern California members aged 4 to 64 years. Secondary aims are 1) to estimate the relative vaccine effectiveness of Flucelvax versus trivalent influenza vaccine (TIV) in vaccinated Kaiser Permanente Northern California members aged 4 to 64 years against all PCR-confirmed influenza B; and 2) to estimate the relative vaccine effectiveness of Flucelvax versus IIV in vaccinated Kaiser Permanente Northern California members aged 4 to 64 years against PCR-confirmed hospitalized influenza A.

Continuation of Group B Streptococcus Epidemiology Study (Phase II)

Kaiser Permanente Northern California has recently collaborated with Pfizer in identifying invasive and noninvasive group B streptococcus (GBS) disease burden in adults during a seven-year time period spanning 2007 to 2014. In Phase 1 of this research collaboration, comorbid medical conditions in subjects with GBS disease were identified. In Phase 2 of this research collaboration, the burden of invasive and/or noninvasive GBS disease among subjects with the most commonly identified medical conditions identified in Phase 1 will be evaluated. These data will inform potential future study populations for the evaluation of a GBS vaccine in adults. The objective is to identify populations at highest risk for GBS disease (invasive and noninvasive) based on the pre-specified medical conditions and age groups from the Phase 1 analyses. Prediction models for patient risks of GBS will be developed, and with the models, each risk factor and combination of risk factors will be evaluated.

Hosting a Hub Server for the Vaccine Safety Datalink

The hub server is used to transfer programs and related files to Vaccine Safety Datalink (VSD) sites from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), and to transfer output from these programs back to CDC. The hub provides a common point that can be accessed by both CDC and participating VSD sites. The purpose of the hub is to provide a secure centralized location to transfer programs and output between CDC and the VSD sites.

Clinical Immunization Safety Assessment (CISA), 1) Clinical Evaluation Activities and 2) Rapid Assessment of Post-Immunization Data (RAPID) Project

The purpose of this project is to provide the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) Immunization Safety Office with an as-needed mechanism to obtain required services through the issuance of individual task orders in support of vaccine safety monitoring and evaluation that meet public health priorities for CDC. The CISA clinical consulting activity covers two CISA goals: a) To serve as a vaccine safety resource for consultation on clinical vaccine safety issues, including individual case reviews, and assist with immunization decision-making; and b) To assist CDC in developing strategies to assess individuals who may be at increased risk for adverse events following immunization. The purpose of the Rapid Assessment of Post-Immunization Data (RAPID) project is to conduct case-centered method analyses to assist with assessments of causality of adverse events following immunization.

Identifying Target Populations for an Investigational C. difficile Vaccine

C. difficile-associated disease's (CDAD) clinical importance and its increasing incidence have resulted in C. difficile being a target for vaccine development. However, questions regarding which population may most benefit from receipt of a C. difficile vaccine remain. While CDAD is known to be associated with hospitalization, limited information exists regarding the burden of disease in specific populations such as those with underlying medical conditions. Further, the burden disease among those in long term care facilities and those in the outpatient setting is not well understood. The overall goal of this study is to identify potential at-risk groups which could be targeted to receive an investigational preventative C. difficile vaccine as part of a Phase 3 clinical trial.

Autoimmune disease risk following quadrivalent HPV vaccine/Prevention and Public Health Funds (PPHF)

Quadrivalent human papillomavirus vaccine (HPV4) is recommended for males and females 9-26 years of age. Pre-licensure trials for HPV4 did not find an imbalance of autoimmune diseases between study arms, however, associations between rare adverse events and the vaccine in these trials were difficult to detect due to limited sample sizes. Many autoimmune diseases manifest during the young adult years; it is important to assess if there is an increased risk of incident autoimmune disease following HPV4, which is recommended just before adolescence.
