What can prevent my child from being immunized?

Your child may not be able to receive an immunization if they have a specific allergy to particular vaccine components (eggs or egg protein; gelatin) or to previous vaccines, if they are currently ill with fever, has congenital immune deficiencies, is on immune-suppressive drugs, or is receiving cancer treatments (chemotherapy or radiotherapy).
