Guidance

Inform transplant centre if vaccinated within the three months prior to harvest. Establish type of vaccination given and whether live-attenuated, killed or subunit.

Live-attenuated vaccines may theoretically cause disease in the immunocompromised recipient.

Examples of live vaccines

Viral

Measles vaccine, mumps vaccine, rubella vaccine, chicken pox vaccine, oral polio vaccine (Sabin), yellow fever vaccine, and nasal-spray flu vaccine (including the seasonal flu nasal spray and the 2009 H1N1 flu nasal spray). Rabies vaccines are now available in two different attenuated forms, one for use in humans, and one for animal usage.

Bacterial

BCG vaccine, typhoid vaccine.
