There are a number of reasons for not giving vaccines. Sometimes vaccines cannot be given or need to be delayed can guys get yeast infections due to contraindications or precautions. Other times people have unfounded concerns that lead to hesitation can guys get yeast infections to get vaccination when there is no increased risk for can guys get yeast infections vaccination. It is critical for vaccine providers to distinguish among these can guys get yeast infections different reasons.

This chapter defines contraindications and precautions and highlights contraindications and can guys get yeast infections precautions contained in other chapters in the canadian immunization guide. It also identifies common concerns and provides information to assist can guys get yeast infections vaccine providers in responding to those concerns. In most cases, these concerns can be addressed with information and reassurance. This chapter is meant to be a user friendly guide can guys get yeast infections to aid in determining whether a particular condition is a can guys get yeast infections contraindication to vaccination, a precaution or a common concern that need not postpone can guys get yeast infections or prevent vaccination.

A precaution is a condition that may increase the risk can guys get yeast infections of an adverse reaction following immunization or that may compromise can guys get yeast infections the ability of the vaccine to produce immunity. In general, vaccines are deferred when a precaution is present. However, there may be circumstances when the benefits of giving the can guys get yeast infections vaccine outweigh the potential harm, or when reduced vaccine immunogenicity may still result in significant can guys get yeast infections benefit to a susceptible, immunocompromised host.

Some precautions and contraindications depend on whether a vaccine is can guys get yeast infections an attenuated live product or an inactivated product. Refer to the contents of immunizing agents available for use can guys get yeast infections in canada in part 1 . For complete vaccine-specific contraindications and precautions, consult the relevant chapter in the canadian immunization guide, the product leaflet, or information contained within the vaccine’s product monograph available through health canada’s drug product database.

Cases of GBS or polyneuritis have been reported following administration can guys get yeast infections of tetanus toxoid-containing vaccine and there has been one case report of can guys get yeast infections relapsing GBS following each of three doses of vaccine. However, population studies have not supported a causal association. Cases of GBS or polyneuritis have also been reported following can guys get yeast infections receipt of diphtheria toxoid-containing vaccine. While some evidence favours a causal relationship between tetanus toxoid can guys get yeast infections and GBS, there is little evidence to support an independent association between can guys get yeast infections receipt of diphtheria toxoid and GBS. Persons who develop GBS within 6 weeks of receipt of can guys get yeast infections tetanus toxoid-containing vaccine should not receive a further dose. Those who develop GBS outside the 6-week interval may receive subsequent doses of the vaccine. If there is a history of both campylobacter infection (which has been associated with GBS) and receipt of a tetanus and diphtheria toxoid-containing vaccine within the 6 weeks before the onset of can guys get yeast infections GBS, consultation with an infectious disease specialist is advised.

In a review of studies between 1976 and 2005, the united states institute of medicine concluded that the 1976 can guys get yeast infections swine flu vaccine was associated with an elevated risk of can guys get yeast infections guillain-barré syndrome (GBS). However, evidence was inadequate to accept or reject a causal relation can guys get yeast infections between GBS in adults and seasonal influenza vaccination. More recent studies suggest that the absolute risk of GBS can guys get yeast infections in the period following seasonal and A(H1N1)pdm09 influenza vaccination is about one excess case per 1 can guys get yeast infections million vaccines. The risk of GBS associated with influenza vaccination must be can guys get yeast infections balanced against the risk of GBS associated with influenza infection can guys get yeast infections itself. In general, it is recommended to avoid subsequent influenza vaccination of persons can guys get yeast infections known to have had GBS within six weeks of a can guys get yeast infections previous influenza vaccination.

Parents may hesitate to have their child have a vaccine can guys get yeast infections if he/she had a history of a post-immunization febrile seizure. Likewise, people may hesitate to have a vaccine if they had can guys get yeast infections an episode of syncope following a previous vaccine (such as may occur with HPV vaccine in a young can guys get yeast infections girl).

Vaccines are safe to given when there is a history can guys get yeast infections of a febrile seizure. For MMR vaccine for example, the risk of febrile seizures within 2 weeks following MMR can guys get yeast infections vaccination was 1.56 per 1000 children overall, 3.97 per 1000 for siblings of children with a history can guys get yeast infections of febrile seizures, and 19.47 per 1000 for children with a personal history of can guys get yeast infections febrile seizures. This means when a child has a history of a can guys get yeast infections febrile seizure 98% will not have a febrile seizure following an MMR vaccine. Children with a history of febrile seizures have no increased can guys get yeast infections risk of developing a seizure disorder, such as epilepsy. Oral analgesics/antipyretics (such as acetaminophen or ibuprofen) can be used for treatment of minor adverse reactions such can guys get yeast infections as fever or injection site discomfort that might occur following can guys get yeast infections vaccination. There is no evidence that antipyretics prevent febrile seizures.

Vaccines are safe to give when there is a history can guys get yeast infections of fainting after a vaccine. The likelihood of fainting can be reduced by measures that can guys get yeast infections lower stress in those awaiting immunization, such as short waiting times, comfortable room temperature, preparation of vaccines out of view of recipients, and privacy during the procedure. People should be immunized while seated. Refer to vaccine administration practices in part 1 for additional can guys get yeast infections information.

Allergic reactions can be either immediate or delayed. An immediate hypersensitivity reaction usually occurs within moments or up can guys get yeast infections to one hour after vaccine. It is ige mediated (type 3) and can be either mild (e.G. Hives) or severe, such as anaphylaxis. Refer to early vaccine reactions including anaphylaxis in part 2 can guys get yeast infections for additional information.

Delayed hypersensitivity reactions may appear several hours to days after can guys get yeast infections immunization. These reactions include an arthus or type 3 reaction (a local vasculitis due to deposition of igg-based immune complexes in dermal blood vessels) or more typically, a cell-mediated, delayed hypersensitivity or type 4 reaction (typically a contact dermatitis). These are typically local reactions to a component of the can guys get yeast infections vaccine.

Severe arthus-type injection site reactions are occasionally reported following receipt of can guys get yeast infections diphtheria toxoid or tetanus toxoid-containing vaccines. There may be extensive painful swelling around the injection site, often involving the arm from shoulder to elbow and generally can guys get yeast infections beginning 2 to 8 hours after injection. Persons experiencing severe injection site reactions should not receive further can guys get yeast infections routine doses of td vaccine for at least 10 years.

On close questioning, it may become evident that people think they have an can guys get yeast infections allergy to a vaccine or vaccine component but it is can guys get yeast infections not an allergy. Most adverse skin events associated with vaccines, for example, are simply a normal inflammatory response to a foreign substance. As these inflammatory reactions are not related to allergy, patients can receive subsequent vaccinations safely. People can be reassured if they have a mild hypersensitivity can guys get yeast infections reaction, such as a contact dermatitis from either the vaccine or can guys get yeast infections one of its components. People with a suspected moderate to severe hypersensitivity reaction, should be referred to an allergist for further testing. Suspected hypersensitivity should not be an ongoing reason to not can guys get yeast infections administer vaccine. It should be investigated by an allergist to clarify whether can guys get yeast infections the person may proceed with vaccination or not.

Routine administration of all age-appropriate doses of vaccines simultaneously is recommended for children without can guys get yeast infections contraindications. There are no contraindications to giving multiple injections at the can guys get yeast infections same visit and all opportunities to immunize should be utilized. Live viral vaccines given by injection may be either given can guys get yeast infections concomitantly or a minimum interval of 4 weeks apart to can guys get yeast infections address the hypothetical risk of interference from the vaccine given can guys get yeast infections first on the vaccine given later. Generally if two live parenteral vaccines are indicated, it is preferable to them concomitantly to avoid the need can guys get yeast infections for a follow up visit. Concomitant administration of vaccines may be critical when preparing for can guys get yeast infections international travel. Refer to recently administered live viral vaccines.

People may need to be reassured that concomitant administration of can guys get yeast infections most routine vaccines at the same visit does not result can guys get yeast infections in decreased antibody responses or increased rates of adverse reaction. Giving multiple vaccines at one visit helps to ensure that can guys get yeast infections people are up to date with the vaccines required for can guys get yeast infections their age and risk factors.

It is generally safe to be immunized when taking salicylates can guys get yeast infections (acetylsalicylic acid, aspirin, or ASA) although some exceptions apply. LAIV is contraindicated in children and adolescents (2-17 years of age) currently receiving salicylates (e.G. Ongoing treatment with aspirin-containing therapy) because of the association of reye’s syndrome with ASA and wild-type influenza infection. TIV is a good alternative. ASA-containing products should be delayed for 4 weeks after receipt can guys get yeast infections of LAIV in children less than 18 years of age.

Another exception is varicella immunization. Varicella-containing vaccine manufacturers recommend avoidance of salicylate therapy for 6 can guys get yeast infections weeks after varicella immunization because of an association between wild-type varicella, salicylate therapy and reye’s syndrome. Health care providers should weigh the theoretical risks associated with can guys get yeast infections varicella vaccine against the known risks associated with wild-type varicella. Because adverse events have not been reported with the use can guys get yeast infections of salicylates after varicella immunization, people with conditions requiring chronic salicylate therapy should be considered can guys get yeast infections for immunization, with close subsequent monitoring. Refer to immunization of persons with chronic diseases in part can guys get yeast infections 3 for additional information.

• rotavirus vaccine: if moderate-to-severe gastroenteritis, defer until condition improves unless deferral will result in scheduling can guys get yeast infections of the first dose beyond the recommended age limit. Oral cholera vaccine: defer until acute gastrointestinal illness resolved.

Diphtheria toxoid or tetanus toxoid-containing vaccines: if there is a history of a severe arthus-type reactions following diphtheria toxoid or tetanus toxoid-containing vaccines, recipients should not receive further routine doses of td vaccine can guys get yeast infections for at least 10 years. Refer to table 1.

Thimerosol allergy is extremely rare. In the rare instance of individuals with proven delayed hypersensitivity can guys get yeast infections to thimerosol, they should be advised that long-lasting local or systemic cutaneous reactions can occur with repeat can guys get yeast infections injection. They should report any reaction of concern following immunization so can guys get yeast infections that it can be managed appropriately

• LAIV, herpes zoster and varicella: consider timing of administration if antiviral drug active against virus can guys get yeast infections in vaccine. Recommended interval between these vaccines and antiviral drugs are vaccine can guys get yeast infections and antiviral specific. Refer to vaccine specific chapters in part 4.

• MMR, varicella-containing vaccine or herpes zoster vaccine: consider timing of vaccines; recommended interval between blood product and these vaccines are vaccine can guys get yeast infections and blood product specific. Refer to recent administration of human immune globulin products in can guys get yeast infections part 1 and vaccine specific chapters in part 4.

Vaccinate in a safe environment which could include being vaccinated can guys get yeast infections lying down, remaining seated in immunization clinic setting, and being accompanied when leaving clinic. Refer to early vaccine reactions including anaphylaxis in part 2 can guys get yeast infections and vaccine administration practices in part 1.
