• Contraindications & Precautions

Where can I find a comprehensive listing of contraindications and precautions to vaccination?

An excellent resource for vaccine contraindications and precautions is the CDC online resource, “General Best Practice Guidelines for Immunization”. A table in the Contraindications and Precautions chapter has a listing for all routine vaccines in the United States available at www.cdc.gov/vaccines/hcp/acip-recs/general-recs/contraindications.html. In addition, a table of contraindications and precautions is provided in the appendix of current CDC recommended adult and child/adolescent immunization schedules, available at www.cdc.gov/vaccines/schedules/hcp/index.html.
