If your child is taking methotrexate, enbrel, humira, infliximab, tofacitinib, rituximab or tocilizumab, he or she should not have any LIVE vaccines. This means no rotavirus, MMR (measles, mumps, rubella), chickenpox (Zoster), BCG or Yellow Fever vaccines (among others). If you're not sure whether a vaccine is live or not, please contact us to check. Your child is encouraged to have all other (non-live) vaccines, including a yearly flu vaccine.
