Abstract

Vaccines routinely recommended for HIV-infected adults include those for influenza, hepatitis A virus, hepatitis B virus, pneumococcal infection, and tetanus. Responses to vaccination may be affected by CD4+ cell count and viral load. A number of live vaccines are contraindicated in the HIV-infected population. This article summarizes a presentation on immunization in HIV-infected adults made by David H. Spach, MD, at the 9th Annual Ryan White CARE Act Clinical Update in Washington, DC, in August 2006. The original presentation is available as a Webcast at www.iasusa.org.
