HIV transmissioin and Rhogam
Jul 28, 2007

I am O negative and have had the Rhogam shot during my pregnacy. Is it at all possible to contract HIV from Rhogam?

Response from Dr. Frascino

Hello,

No, RhoGAM and other gammaglobulin products undergo processes during production that would deactivate HIV. There are also no reported cases of HIV transmission resulting from a RhoGAM injection that I am aware of.
