What vaccines can a child with severe combined immunodeficiency disease (SCID) receive?

Children with SCID may be given inactivated vaccines (e.g., DTaP, Hib, hepatitis B, pneumococcal conjugate, hepatitis A, IPV, and injectable influenza). They should not be given live virus vaccines (e.g., live attenuated influenza, MMR, rotavirus, and varicella).
