5.1 Management of Allergic Reactions Adequate treatment provisions, including epinephrine injection (1:1000), should be available for immediate use should anaphylaxis occur. 5.2 Family History of Immunodeficiency Vaccination should be deferred in patients with a family history of congenital or hereditary immunodeficiency until the patient’s immune status has been evaluated and the patient has been found to be immunocompetent. 5.3 Use in HIV-Infected Individuals The Advisory Committee for Immunization Practices (ACIP) has recommendations on the use of varicella vaccine in HIV-infected individuals. 5.4 Risk of Vaccine Virus Transmission Post-marketing experience suggests that transmission of vaccine virus may occur rarely between healthy vaccinees who develop a varicella-like rash and healthy susceptible contacts. Transmission of vaccine virus from a mother who did not develop a varicella-like rash to her newborn infant has been reported.
