Who should not be Vaccinated

Category: Infectious Diseases

Unless exposure to smallpox is believed to
have taken place or likely to take place, teething children, pregnant
women, persons suffering from measles, scarlet fever, erysipelas, or
susceptible to and recently exposed to one of these diseases, persons
suffering with skin diseases or eruption, and in general feeble persons
not in good health, should not be vaccinated. In all cases in which there
is any doubt as to the propriety of vaccinating or postponing vaccination
the judgment of a good physician should be taken. The restriction, as to
vaccinating teething children makes it important that children should be
vaccinated before the teething process has begun, because smallpox is very
much more dangerous than vaccination. Smallpox is exceedingly dangerous to
pregnant women.
