Are there any contraindications to the Hepatitis B vaccine?

0

There are only two reasons to withhold or postpone administration of Hepatitis B vaccine. These are:- Severe allergic reaction to a previous dose of Hepatitis B vaccine. A child with a history of a severe allergic reaction (e.g. generalized urticaria, difficulty breathing, swelling of the mouth and throat, hypotension, shock) to a prior dose of Hepatitis B vaccine should not receive another dose. – Severe allergic reaction to bakers yeast (the kind used in making bread). Children with a history of a severe allergic reaction to bakers yeast should not receive formulations of Hepatitis B vaccine prepared in yeast cells. These children may safely receive plasma-derived vaccine.

Children with a history of a severe allergic reaction to baker’s yeast should not receive formulations of Hepatitis B vaccine prepared in yeast cells. These children may safely receive plasma-derived vaccine. How is the vaccine presented? The government has procured a plasma-derived recombinant vaccine through UNICEF from a WHO-qualified producer. It is a cloudy liquid that comes in a ten-dose vial and does not require reconstitution.
