KEY FACTS ABOUT JAPANESE ENCEPHALITIS

Japanese encephalitis
is not just in Japan


The Japanese Encephalitis virus is endemic to more than 24 countries across Asia and Southeast Asia, as well as parts of the western Pacific

JE occurs across Asia

Over 70,000 symptomatic cases of JE are estimated to occur each year worldwide.

It is not possible to predict who will develop the disease – the majority of infections in humans are asymptomatic; clinical disease develops in one in every 50 to 1,000 individuals infected.

IXIARO® is a vaccine to help prevent Japanese Encephalitis (JE). IXIARO® is indicated for active immunization against Japanese Encephalitis for persons 2 months of age and older. As with any other vaccine, vaccination with IXIARO® may not result in protection in all cases. IXIARO® will not protect against encephalitis caused by other micro-organisms.

Allergic reaction may occur. In adults, very common side effects include headache, muscle pain, injection site reactions (pain, tenderness) and tiredness.
The most commonly reported side effects in children and adolescents include fever, diarrhea, influenza-like illness, irritability and injection site reactions (pain, tenderness, redness).
