Post-Transplant Vaccination

Vaccination is of great importance in terms of preventing infections that may occur in the post-transplant period. The point to be noted here is that if possible, the entire vaccination should be completed before the transplant, and if it is possible that at least six months will pass after the transplant, one year should be expected to be completed.

Vaccines that can be administered after transplantation: Hepatitis B vaccine, HPV vaccine, Diphtheria-Pertussis-Tetanus vaccine, inactivated (non-live) Polio vaccine, inactive flu vaccine.

Vaccines that should not be administered after transplantation: Tuberculosis, Measles-Rubella-Mumps, Chickenpox, Oral Polio (Polio), Smallpox, Yellow Fever and live flu vaccine.
