Pediatric kidney transplantation part 56




Why does your child need immunizations?

Getting immunizations helps protect children from serious disease. Some children with kidney disease may have missed some of their immunizations. They could have been ill at the time or on medications that weaken the immune system. Vaccines work better before transplantation and some (live vaccines) cannot be given after transplant. Your child’s kidney doctor will make every effort to make sure that your child is up-to-date on his or her immunizations before getting a kidney transplant. Please check with your child’s doctor and the transplant team on which ones your child needs before the transplant.
