dengue tetravalent vaccine (live, attenuated)

This medicine is authorised for use in the European Union.


Dengvaxia is a vaccine used to help protect against dengue disease.

Dengue disease is a mosquito-borne tropical disease caused by the dengue virus leading to mild, flu-like symptoms in most people. However, a small number of patients develop severe disease, with potentially fatal bleeding and organ damage. The risk of severe disease is higher in people who have been infected a second time.

There are several varieties (called serotypes) of dengue virus and Dengvaxia protects against serotypes 1, 2, 3 and 4.

Dengvaxia is only for use in people from 9 to 45 years of age who have been infected with dengue virus before and who live in areas where this infection is endemic. Endemic areas are areas where the disease occurs regularly throughout the year.

Dengvaxia contains attenuated (weakened) yellow fever viruses that have been manipulated so that they contain proteins from dengue virus.
