Pediatric Vaccinations (Picmonic)

Picmonic Picmonic
Vaccinations are a type of primary prevention, meaning that their goal is to decrease the overall incidence of disease in the population.

General contraindications to all vaccinations include serious (anaphylactic) allergic reactions to any vaccine component or a previous dose of the particular vaccination and those with severe immunodeficiency. Live vaccines (MMR, varicella, yellow fever, nasal influenza, oral rotavirus) should not be given to immunosuppressed or pregnant patients. Many of these vaccines are available in a combination to decrease the overall number of shots given.
