Side Effects of IPOL

Just like any vaccine, IPOL may cause side effects. However, not everyone who receives the vaccine will experience problems. In fact, most children tolerate it well, with only minor side effects, if any. If side effects do occur, in most cases, they are minor and either require no treatment or can be treated easily by you or your healthcare provider. Serious reactions are less common.
Some of the most common side effects seen with IPOL include but are not limited to:
  • Irritability
  • Tiredness
  • Injection site reactions, such as tenderness or swelling.

Drug Interactions

IPOL can potentially interact with a few medications (see IPOL Drug Interactions).

What Should I Tell My Healthcare Provider?

You should talk to a healthcare provider before your child receives this vaccine if your child has:
  • An immune-suppressing condition, such as HIV or AIDS, diabetes, or cancer
  • Had any sort of a reaction to any vaccine in the past
  • A moderate-to-severe illness
  • Any allergies, including to foods, dyes, or preservatives.
Make sure to tell the healthcare provider about all the medicines your child is taking, including prescription and nonprescription medicines, vitamins, and herbal supplements.
