HLN today released a new version of its ICE Open Source Immunization Evaluation and Forecasting software covering the following changes:

HPV updates:

(1) Added support for new 2-dose series; recommend based on 2- or 3-dose series accordingly.

(2) Ignore (HPV, bivalent (Cervarix)) shots administered to males.

(3) Removed minimum age restriction for dose 2 and dose 3

Meningococcal updates:

(1) Added absolute minimum age/minimum age of 16 years for dose 2.

(2) Changed recommended interval between dose 1 and dose 2 from 3 years to 56 days

Please refer to the HPV rules documentation and Meningococcal rules documentation for details.

ICE is a fully Open Source, web-services-based product compliant with US-based ACIP clinical rules. It is fully flexible and could be augmented with other rulesets (like WHO) with appropriate interest, collaboration, and funding.
