Ask Before Giving Live Virus Vaccines

Posted on: August 21, 2006

Before giving the following live virus vaccines:

-Yellow Fever
-MMR
-Typhoid
-Zostavax/Varicella

It’s important to ask these questions:

1. Have you had Immune Globulin within past 30 days?
2. Are you currently taking antibiotics now?
3. Have you had any other live virus shots recently?
4. Have you had a blood transfusion within past 30 days?

Make sure that she is not pregnant, and that there are no allergies to eggs.
