Respiratory Syncytial Virus (RSV) Vaccine



Recommendations for individuals aged 60 and above, especially those with chronic illnesses, to receive early vaccination:

  • Only one dose is required, effectively reducing the risk of RSV infection and the likelihood of developing complications after infection.
  • 82.6% efficacy*: Protects against lower respiratory tract diseases caused by respiratory syncytial virus (RSV).
  • 94.6% efficacy*: Protects individuals with at least one coexisting condition.


Clinical features

RSV causes respiratory tract diseases such as infection of the airway, lungs and middle ear. It is the most common cause of bronchiolitis and pneumonia for those under 1 year of age. Patients develop fever and other symptoms such as runny nose, cough, headache, decreased appetite, body ache or weakness, and occasionally otitis media.


Complications of Severe Infections

Severe infections can spread to the lower respiratory tract, leading to pneumonia, middle ear infections, or inflammation of the small airways. Typically, common symptoms resolve within one to two weeks of recovery. However, in cases of severe illness, patients may continue to experience symptoms such as asthma even after two weeks.


Mode of transmission

The virus can be transmitted by direct contact with infectious secretions, by droplets spread, or indirectly through contaminated hands, eating utensils or articles freshly soiled by nasal or throat discharges of an infected person.


Incubation period

The incubation period is 1 – 10 days, usually 5 – 7 days.



The infection usually subsides in about 1 – 2 weeks
