Flu vaccine dangerous during actute HIV infection?
Dec 18, 2007

Is it dangerous to be administered influenza (or other) vaccines if you were recently infected with HIV?

Response from Dr. Frascino

Hello,

No, it's not dangerous. Vaccinations may transiently cause a rise in viral replication, leading to a transient spike in viral load. However, the beneficial effects of appropriate vaccinations far outweigh any even theoretical risks associated with a transient increase in plasma HIV viral load.
