Special Precautions
Take Special Care with Imovax Polio if Patient or Child: Have thrombocytopenia (insufficient blood platelets, which play an important role in coagulation) or a bleeding disorder, because of the bleeding that can occur during intramuscular administration of the vaccine.
Are taking a treatment that suppresses immune responses or presenting with an immune deficiency disorder, in which case the immune response to the vaccine may be reduced. In such cases it is recommended to postpone vaccination until the end of the treatment or to make sure the subject is well protected. Vaccination of subjects with chronic immunodeficiency such as HIV infection, is nevertheless recommended even if the immune response might be limited by the underlying illness.
This vaccine may also be indicated for subjects for whom the oral vaccine is contraindicated and as a booster for subjects previously vaccinated with the oral vaccine.
Do not inject by the intravascular route: Make sure the needle does not penetrate a blood vessel.
Effects on the Ability to Drive or Operate Machinery: Not applicable.
