Abstract

Infections after cardiovascular disease are the second most common cause of death in the chronic kidney disease population. Vaccination is an important component of maintaining health and wellness in patients with kidney disease. There is a changing epidemiologic landscape for several vaccine-preventable illnesses from childhood to adulthood and unfounded public perception of safety concerns. Several mechanisms have been proposed to cause inadequate vaccine protection in this high-risk group with chronic kidney disease. These have led to recent advances in new designs for vaccination strategies in kidney disease. In this article, we discuss the current evidence and recommendations for vaccination in those with kidney disease and needing renal replacement therapy (dialysis and transplant).
