After a 12-year hiatus, military recruit training centers resumed administration of adenovirus type 4 and type 7 vaccine, live, oral adenovirus vaccine to trainees beginning in October of 2011. Subsequently, rates of febrile respiratory illnesses FRI and adenovirus isolations markedly declined. These findings are consistent with those of a placebo-controlled efficacy trial conducted prior to the vaccine s licensure by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration. Continued surveillance will clarify the longer term impact of vaccine use.
