Individuals who have an allergic reaction after receiving a vaccine may be able to safely receive that vaccine again in the future provided proper precautions are taken, according to recommendations laid out in a new guideline released October 8.
The guideline’s authors said that physicians should strive to overcome allergy-related issues surrounding a particular vaccine, not only to protect the individual from certain infectious diseases but also to reduce the risk of infection in the general population. The guideline, Adverse Reactions to Vaccines, was issued by the Joint Task Force on Practice Parameters, a group representing the American Academy of Allergy, Asthma and Immunology; the American College of Allergy, Asthma and Immunology; and the Joint Council of Allergy, Asthma and Immunology (Kelso JM et al. Ann Allergy Asthma Immunol. 2009;103,[suppl 2]:1-14).
