Vaccine to prevent dieases for POZ people

<< < (3/4) > >>

intaglio:
This is an article that recommends gay men get vaccinated against HPV. It seems I've seen a few articles recommending HIV+ people get this vaccine, too, but I don't have a handy citation for it.

After reading one of those about six months ago, I talked to my ID doc, and he didn't feel I should get this vaccine (he said I wasn't part of the target demographic).

So, do any of you here think this should be added to the recommended regimen or not?

In regards to the HPV vaccine the CDC and here is the link

http://www.cdc.gov/std/hpv/stdfact-hpv-and-men.htm

states that it is only effective if you are under 26. This link also give a lot more information regarding get tested for HPV etc.

Thank you very much for your knowledge sharing.

I have just been advised by my doctor that I could take in the following vaccine AT THE SAME TIME:

1. Influenza
2. Pneumonia
3. Meningitis (meningococcal)
4. Tetanus

So my concern and question are:

- What should be the best timeline and order to take in the 4 vaccines into body to get have good solution? One week one vaccine or how? to make our body accept and deal good with the vaccines in the right way.

- Is Polysaccharide pneumococcal (PCV13, PPSV23) the Prevnar 13 and Pneumovax 23 that buginme2 mentioned? How should be a right ordor to take in this pneumococcal?

Hope to get your experience.

here's a link from the cdc with possible side effects of various vaccinations;

Personally I wouldn't take them all at once but would space them, the a couple of them I know are going to making you arm sore for a couple of days. Perhaps you doctor should give more direction, will his office being administering them? If you have insurance it should be covered with only paying for an office visit.

I have been vaccinated for all of the these.  Going through the second series of Hep B as the first round did not take.  Have also been vaccinated for Hep A.  I spoke with my ID about all of these and recently about Yellow Fever(meningitis) which we decided to vaccinate me for.
