Protocol 12. Immunization of people living with HIV/AIDS and people at risk of HIV infection




This protocol is based on the global WHO recommendations for vaccinating people who are HIVinfected. At the same time, it reflects the epidemiological situation and immunization programme priorities of the WHO European Region. This protocol diverts from global recommendations regarding the use of bacille Calmette-Guérin (BCG) vaccine, oral poliovirus vaccine (OPV) and measles-containing vaccines (MCVs) including measles, mumps and rubella (MMR) vaccine. It also provides additional recommendations on the vaccines and immunoglobulins used outside the routine national immunization programmes.
