Vaccination for people who have had an adverse event following immunisation

People who have had a serious AEFI can usually be vaccinated under medical supervision, unless they have a contraindication for that vaccine

Adverse events after vaccination sometimes occur. The term ‘adverse event following immunisation’ (AEFI) refers to any untoward medical occurrence that follows vaccination. It does not necessarily have a causal relationship with the vaccine.1

For more details on AEFIs, including uncommon or rare AEFIs, see Adverse events following immunisation.
