  • Contraindications & Precautions

What are the precautions to Dengvaxia?

A precaution to Dengvaxia is a moderate or severe acute illness with or without fever. Vaccination should be deferred until the condition improves.

ACIP recommends that Dengvaxia may be used with precaution in certain special populations for whom the risks and benefits of vaccination to prevent DENV infection must be evaluated but for whom limited safety data are available. These groups include pregnant people, breastfeeding people, and people with HIV that is controlled and does not meet the criteria for a contraindication.
