Screen for Contraindications and Precautions
Patients and their family members count on health care personnel to administer vaccines safely. Always screen patients for contraindications and precautions before a vaccine is administered, even if the same vaccine was administered previously. A patient’s health status or the recommendations for contraindications and precautions may have changed since the last dose was given. Screening helps prevent adverse reactions such as anaphylaxis. At each visit, use a standardized screening tool to assess patients consistently and correctly.
