  ►    Mechanism of Drug Drug Interaction :  The ability of vaccines to induce an immune response can be influenced by the recent use of other vaccines or immunoglobulins. Live vaccines should either be given simultaneously (but at different sites) or an interval of at least 3 weeks allowed between them. Live vaccines should normally be given at least 3 weeks before or at least 3 months after the use of immunoglobulin.

Patients receiving immunosuppressant therapy, including antineoplastics or therapeutic doses of corticosteroids, may also display a reduced response to vaccines,
