Drug Special Care History of GI disorders including chronic GI disorders, chronic diarrhoea, congenital abdominal disorders, abdominal surgery; growth retardation. Defer admin in infants suffering from acute diarrhoea, vomiting or severe acute febrile illness. Monitor infant after vaccination for signs of intussusceptions (e.g. severe abdominal pain, persistent vomiting, bloating, blood in stools, and/or high fever) or Kawasaki disease (E.g fever, skin rash, red eyes, red mouth, swollen hands and feet, swollen gland). Use with caution in presence of non-vaccinated or immunodeficient contacts due to a theoretical risk of live vaccine virus transmission via excretion in the stool. Use in immunocompromised/potentially immunocompromised infants or post-exposure prophylaxis have not been evaluated.
Drug Drug Interactions Immunosuppressive therapies may diminish a patient's immune response to the vaccine. Simultaneous immunisation with other age-appropriate vaccines including live virus vaccines, toxoids, inactivated or recombinant vaccines is not expected to interfere with the immunologic responses to the vaccine.
Drug Pregnancy Interaction Category C: Either studies in animals have revealed adverse effects on the foetus (teratogenic or embryocidal or other) and there are no controlled studies in women or studies in women and animals are not available. Drugs should be given only if the potential benefit justifies the potential risk to the foetus.
