The Immunocompromised Adult

This list includes all of the live virus vaccines in the routine Advisory Committee on Immunization Practice (ACIP) adult immunization schedule. None should be administered to severely immunocompromised individuals. (There are also several live vaccines in the travel schedule that should not be administered to immunocompromised travelers. Information specific to region of travel is available on the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention Website.)
