Vaccination and Diabetes

Though some countries report an increase in the incidence of diabetes amongst vaccinated individuals, all available scientific studies fail to establish any definite link between the two.

The benefits of vaccination outweigh any unproven risks by far. Therefore, children and adults with diabetes should follow the same immunization schedule as for others with normal glucose metabolism.

Vaccination can result in transient illness, especially an episode of fever. This is an expected reaction of the body’s natural immunity to vaccination. Blood glucose can rise during this time, so your physician needs to know when vaccination is administered. The person who gives the vaccine should also know beforehand if you have diabetes.

Please write to me if you would like additional information about vaccination and diabetes.
