Immunizations in adult immunocompromised patients: Which to use and which to avoid

Research output: Contribution to journalReview article

Abstract

Immunization is important to protect immunocompromised patients from preventable infectious disease but is often underused. Although live vaccines are contraindicated for most immunocompromised patients, many killed or component vaccines are safe and recommended. Vaccines may sometimes induce suboptimal immunogenicity, but even partial protection may benefit severely ill patients.
