PREVNAR 20™ Warnings and Precautions (pneumococcal 20-valent conjugate vaccine)

5.1 Management of Acute Allergic Reactions

Appropriate medical treatment and supervision used to manage immediate allergic reactions must be immediately available should an acute anaphylactic reaction occur following administration of Prevnar 20.

5.2 Altered Immunocompetence

Safety and immunogenicity data on Prevnar 20 are not available for individuals in immunocompromised groups and vaccination should be considered on an individual basis.
