Spécificités de la consultation pré-voyage du sénior : étude descriptive au centre de vaccinations internationales du CHU de Bordeaux (2013-2018)

Abstract : Background : Older travelers have socio-medical characteristics insufficiently taken into account during his pre-travel consultation. The aim of this study is to describe the vaccination and malaria prevention practices during the senior pre-travel consultation. Method : A cross sectional study was performed on senior (age > 60) pre-travel consultation at the travel medicine clinic in Bordeaux, France. Among the travelers, 70 patients each year were randomly selected from 2013 to 2018. Results : Four hundred fourteen patients were included in this study. Their median age was 65 [IIQ : 62–68] with a M/F ratio of 1.03. A chronic medical condition was reported by 60.9 % (n=252) of the travelers and a chronic medication was taken by 62.8 % (n=260) of them. Yellow fever vaccine was administered to 43.7% (n=181) of the travelers. Typhoid fever vaccine was prescribed to 38.2 % (n=158) of the travelers and hepatitis A vaccine to 20.3 % (n=84) among them. A DTaP/IPV booster was prescribed to 68.9 % (n=84) of the consultants who were not up to date with vaccination. Malaria chemoprophylaxis was prescribed to 56.6% (n=230) of the travelers. The presence of a medical history (p=0.54) or a chronic medication (p=0.75) did not modify the indication for a prescription for antimalarial chemoprophylaxis. Conclusion : This study provides an overview of the senior pre-travel consultation across practices from a travel clinic.
