Can Qdenga be used during outbreaks of dengue fever?

Hello Dr, recently I have come across multiple news on how dengue fever is spreading and the number of cases is increasing. I wonder if Qdenga can be used during outbreaks of dengue fever?

Greetings and thank you for your question.

Qdenga is a newer dengue vaccine developed by Takeda, and its efficacy and suitability for use during outbreaks would likely depend on factors such as its effectiveness in preventing dengue infection and the timing of vaccination relative to the outbreak. However, Qdenga may be considered for use during outbreaks of dengue fever to help prevent the spread of the disease.

In general, vaccination during outbreaks may be considered as part of comprehensive public health measures to control the spread of dengue fever. However, the decision to use a particular vaccine during an outbreak would depend on various factors, including the severity of the outbreak, the availability of the vaccine, and guidance from public health authorities.

It’s essential to consult with healthcare providers and public health authorities for the most up-to-date information on the use of dengue vaccines, including Qdenga, during outbreaks of dengue fever.

If you have further questions about dengue fever or the vaccine, I recommend consulting with a healthcare professional for personalised advice and guidance.
