Couverture vaccinale contre la rougeole des enfants scolarisés en sixième et seconde dans l'académie de Grenoble en 2010-2011

Abstract : Context : An outbreak of measles began in France in 2008. The incidence in the Rhône-Alpes is one of the highest in France (94 cas/100000hab). To understand the resurgence of the disease we compared measles vaccination coverage (VC) of sixth grade and tenth grade's student of the Grenoble's Academy. Method: We conducted an anonymous survey on the VC of measles of all first and fifth- grade students of private under contract high schools. For public institutions, collection of VC performed by nurses of the academy in 2010 was taken up and completed. Results: The overall participation of schools is 75.35%. Students' participation is 85.28%. The sixth grade's students participation is better than tenth grade's one: 82.52% against 60.86%. Students of the public have participated more than the private. The sixth grade'students participated better than the tenth grade student. The worth the participation is in a school, the better the VC is. In the Academy, the VC of the participating students was 85% for two doses, one dose : 10%, 5% of students are not vaccinated. We have shown a downward trend in the VC among students in the sixth grade over those of a tenth grade, especially in the Drôme and Ardèche, where the situation is already the most concern: only 80% of VC for two doses in public sector. Conclusion: Non-participants are probably poorly vaccinated, the VC is still insufficient in middle and high schools and students from the private sector are less well vaccinated than those of the public. A targeted public health action should be set up particularly in critical areas.
