Vaccination of Transplant Recipients



Infections have been major obstacles for successful transplantations. Thus, infection prevention is very important. Immunizations can protect the recipient against serious infections that may occur during the early or late post-transplant period. Despite that several sets of recommendations have been published during the last decade, the uptake of these recommendations is variable among physicians dealing with transplant patients. Furthermore, transplant techniques evolve and recommendations and practices have to be adapted accordingly. This chapter reviews current information and recommendations regarding vaccinations of hematopoietic stem cell and solid organ transplant recipients.
