An excellent resource for vaccine contraindications and precautions is the ACIP “General Best Practice Guidelines for Immunization”, available at www.cdc.gov/vaccines/hcp/acip-recs/general-recs/contraindications.html. A table in the Contraindications and Precautions chapter has a listing for all routine vaccines available in the United States. Immunize.org also has summary tables of contraindications and precautions for people of all ages (www.immunize.org/catg.d/p3072a.pdf) and a summary for vaccines given to adults (www.immunize.org/catg.d/p3072.pdf).
Contraindications and precautions to non-routine vaccines of special interest are not listed in the “General Best Practice Guidelines for Immunization” but may be accessed directly on the CDC website:
