Adenovirus vaccine

Some people should not get adenovirus vaccine.

  • Anyone with a severe (life-threatening) allergy to any component of the vaccine. Tell the doctor if you have any severe allergies.
  • Pregnant women or nursing mothers.
  • Anyone who is unable to swallow the vaccine tablets whole without chewing them.
  • Anyone younger than 17 or older than 50 years of age.

A woman who learns she was pregnant when she got the vaccine, or becomes pregnant within 6 weeks after vaccination, should contact the Adenovirus Vaccine Pregnancy Registry at 1-866-790-4549. This will help us learn how pregnant women and their babies respond to the vaccine.
