Vaccinations after hematopoietic cell transplant

key information

source: National Marrow Donor Program

year: N/A


Hematopoietic cell transplant recipients may remain immunocompromised far beyond 2 years post-transplant, especially individuals with chronic graft-versus-host disease (GVHD). Therefore, post-transplant patients should be routinely revaccinated after transplant until they regain immune competence.

The vaccination schedule below is based on international consensus guidelines for preventing infectious complications among all transplant recipients and is recommended for both autologous and allogeneic hematopoietic cell transplant (HCT) recipients.


Recommended Vaccinations:

Pneumococcal Conjugate 

• Tetanus, Diphtheria, Acellular Pertussis

Haemophilus Influenzae Conjugate

• Meningococcal Conjugate

• Inactivated Polio

• Recombinant Hepatitis B 

• Inactivated Influenza

• Measles-Mumps-Rubella
