Which vaccines contain live viruses?

Currently available live attenuated viral vaccines are measles, mumps, rubella, vaccinia, varicella, zoster (which contains the same virus as varicella vaccine but in much higher amount), yellow fever, rotavirus, and influenza (intranasal).

Which two vaccines need to be separated by at least 28 days if not given simultaneously?

For persons with anatomic or functional asplenia and/or HIV, PCV13 should be administered first and MenACWY-D 4 weeks later. In patients recommended to receive both PCV13 and PPSV23, the 2 vaccines should not be administered simultaneously (28).

Why can’t immunocompromised get live vaccines?

In general, severely immunocompromised children should not receive live vaccines, either viral or bacterial, because of the risk of disease caused by vaccine strains.

Which type of vaccine is most effective?

Live-attenuated vaccines Because these vaccines are so similar to the natural infection that they help prevent, they create a strong and long-lasting immune response. Just 1 or 2 doses of most live vaccines can give you a lifetime of protection against a germ and the disease it causes.

Who should not receive live attenuated vaccines?

Who should not be vaccinated with the nasal spray flu vaccine?Children younger than 2 years.Adults 50 years and older.People with a history of severe allergic reaction to any ingredient of the vaccine or to a previous dose of any influenza vaccine.More items…

Which is killed vaccine?

The measles, mumps, and rubella (MMR) vaccine and the varicella (chickenpox) vaccine are examples. Killed (inactivated) vaccines are made from a protein or other small pieces taken from a virus or bacteria. The whooping cough (pertussis) vaccine is an example.

How long does the norovirus vaccine last?

We do not know for sure, but clinical trials have shown that 2 doses of the vaccine protect for several years.

What are the contraindications for live vaccines?

Two conditions are temporary contraindications to vaccination with live vaccines: pregnancy and immunosuppression.

Is there a vaccine for the chicken pox?

Chickenpox vaccine became available in the United States in 1995. Each year, more than 3.5 million cases of chickenpox, 9,000 hospitalizations, and 100 deaths are prevented by chickenpox vaccination in the United States.

Do live virus vaccines use dead pathogens?

An inactivated vaccine (or killed vaccine) is a vaccine consisting of virus particles, bacteria, or other pathogens that have been grown in culture and then killed to destroy disease producing capacity. In contrast, live vaccines use pathogens that are still alive (but are almost always attenuated, that is, weakened).

Is a live vaccine safe?

This is because there is a small risk that a healthy person who has received the live vaccine could pass the weakened form of the virus on to someone who is immunosuppressed and cause disease. (The weakened virus is not capable of causing disease in any other healthy people.)

What vaccines should not be given to immunocompromised patients?

Varicella and zoster vaccines should not be administered to highly immunocompromised patients. Annual vaccination with inactivated influenza vaccine is recommended for immunocompromised patients six months and older, except those who are unlikely to respond.

What is the difference between a live and dead vaccine?

The largest difference between a live and dead vaccine is that a live vaccine elicits a stronger response in your immune system than a dead one. As mentioned above, that means that a live vaccination can last a lifetime. A dead vaccination requires regular booster shots throughout your life.

Who is immunosuppressed?

Immunocompromised or immunosuppressed means having a weakened immune system. Immunocompromised patients have a reduced ability to fight infections and other diseases. This may be caused by certain diseases or conditions, such as AIDS, cancer, diabetes, malnutrition, and certain genetic disorders.
