The Japanese Encephalitis vaccine is given as a two dose series.


About Japanese Encephalitis
  • JEV is transmitted to humans through the bite of an infected mosquito, primarily Culex species. Wading birds are the main animal reservoir for the virus, but the presence of pigs greatly amplifies the transmission of JEV.
  • Humans are a dead-end host in the JEV transmission cycle.

Occurrence
  • JEV is the most common cause of encephalitis in Asia, occurring throughout most of Asia and parts of the western Pacific. JEV has not been locally transmitted in Africa, Europe, or the Americas.
  • JEV transmission principally occurs in rural agricultural areas, often associated with rice production and flooding irrigation. In some areas of Asia, these ecologic conditions may occur near or occasionally within urban centers.
  • In temperate areas of Asia, transmission is seasonal, and human disease usually peaks in summer and fall. In the subtropics and tropics, seasonal transmission varies with monsoon rains and irrigation practices and may be extended or even occur year-round.
  • In endemic countries, JE is primarily a disease of children. However, travel-associated JE can occur among persons of any age.
