It is very important that your doctor check your progress at regular visits to make sure that this vaccine is working properly and to check for unwanted effects.

Make sure your doctor knows if you have any type of cancer or is receiving medicine or a procedure that may weaken the immune system, including steroids, cancer medicines, or radiation.

Tell your doctor if you spend time with a person who has an immune system problem or is getting cancer medicines. Your doctor may recommend ways (eg, proper hand washing after using the bathroom or before preparing or handling food) to help prevent the spread of vaccine virus to other people.

Tell your doctor if you have a headache, nausea or vomiting, stomach pain, tiredness, and diarrhea after 7 days of receiving this vaccine.

Do not take other medicines unless they have been discussed with your doctor. This includes prescription or nonprescription (over-the-counter [OTC]) medicines and herbal or vitamin supplements.
