K my child was diagnosed with autoimmung Hep at 12. Was on Prednisone and azathioprine and is doing great now. On low doses of both still. She will have another Liver biopsy in a year with hopes to remove her from all meds if all is well. She is going in tomorrow for Hep A vaccine. I am just not sure about that????? Can anyone make me feel better about giving her vaccinations especiall Hep vaccines. Another question for you all is How is Mono linked to this. She was diagnosed with Mono at 3 1/2 years old.
Melissa Palmer, MD responded:
The hepatitis A vaccine is recommended in anyone with chronic liver disease. Studies have shown that if someone with liver disease becomes infected with hepatitis A they risk having a very severe course of disease.
lalalaa replied to Melissa Palmer, MD's response:
Thanks for your input... Are there any vaccines that you are aware of that she she not have?
Melissa Palmer, MD replied to lalalaa's response:
The hepatitis A and B vaccine are recommended in anyone with chronic liver disease. Other vaccines are at the recommendation of your personal physician. And, mono has not correlation with autoimmune hepatitis
