The Infectious Diseases Society of America (IDSA) has recently updated the guidelines for vaccination of immunocompromised patients (Rubin, et al. Clin Infect Dis. 2014;58:309-18), with specific recommendations for HIV-infected individuals. Besides stressing the importance of completion and updating infant vaccination schedules, these guidelines highlight the need for administration of certain inactivated vaccines to adults. Moreover, principles that should guide the administration of attenuated vaccines in immunocompromised patients are given.
