Precautions and Warnings With IPV

Who Should Not Get Vaccinated?

Your child should not receive IPV if he or she has had a serious reaction to any component of the vaccine, including any of the active ingredients, which vary depending on the particular brand. Your healthcare provider has a complete list of these inactive ingredients.
 
People who are moderately or severely ill (including those with a high fever) should wait to receive the vaccine. Your child can receive IPV if he or she has a mild illness, such as the common cold. However, it is usually best to postpone the vaccine in the case of a moderate or severe illness.
 
There may be other situations in which the combination vaccines (Pediarix, Pentacel, and Kinrix) should not be given.
