Pediatric kidney transplantation part 61

Children

 

IMMUNIZATIONS

On occasion some transplant centers will give life vaccines under certain conditions such as when an outbreak is occuring; however this should be done ONLY with strict observations and oversight of the transplant center.

Common live vaccines are:

  • Chicken pox (varicella)
  • Smallpox
  • Oral polio
  • Rotavirus
  • Measles/mumps/rubella (MMR)
  • Influenza drops into the nose (influenza nasal mist, FluMist)

Other family members and your child’s classmates can safely get the chickenpox, rotavirus and MMR vaccines. On rare occasions a child will break out with a rash after the chikenpox vaccine. If this happens call the transplant team to discuss. Most often it is not contagious or it is only mildly contagious. Other household members should not get the oral polio vaccine. Only the inactive polio vaccine called IPV should be used.
