Voyageur immunosupprimé : recommandations vaccinales


Eperon, Gilles; Bühler, Silja; Enriquez, Natalia; Vaudaux, Bernard (2018). Voyageur immunosupprimé : recommandations vaccinales. Revue Médicale Suisse, 14(605):922-933.

Abstract

The number of immunosuppressed travelers has exponentially increased in the past few years. This is a positive development as these patients, owing to much improved management, are now in a condition allowing them to plan activities abroad comparable to healthy persons. However, pre-travel consultation and vaccinations are particularly important to reduce the risks and/or the complications of travel-related diseases. Although we already published a review on this topic in 2013, the recent increase of immunosuppressive agents available in Switzerland justifies this update.
