Evidence-Based Vaccine Recommendations for Dermatology Patients

Although vaccines are typically discussed in primary care settings, dermatologists have an important role in vaccine education, especially when prescribing immunosuppressive medications that can increase risk of infections. Infections are more common in patients with chronic skin diseases due to disruption of the protective skin barrier, immune dysregulation associated with disease, and immunosuppressive treatments.
