"Rubella is usually mild in children. But for some peopleā”especially pregnant women and their babiesā”rubella can be serious. Make sure you and your child are protected from rubella by getting vaccinated on schedule.
IPOL vaccine is contraindicated in persons with a history of hypersensitivity to any component of the vaccine, including 2-phenoxyethanol, formaldehyde, neomycin, streptomycin, and polymyxin B.
Vaccination of persons with an acute, febrile illness should be deferred until after recovery; however, minor illness, such as mild upper respiratory infection, with or without low grade fever, are not reasons for postponing vaccine administration.
