Vaccination After Your Transplant for Adults

Vaccines save lives and protect against dangerous and deadly infections. Organ transplant recipients, like yourself, are at an increased risk of infections because of the anti-rejection medications you are taking. These can weaken your immune system.

Ideally, you should receive all necessary vaccines before your transplant. However, if you did not have time to receive all the recommended vaccines before your transplant, vaccines can be given 3 to 6 months after transplantation.  

For more information, please see our vaccination handout for patients.
