Applies to: ACAM2000 (smallpox vaccine) and mycophenolic acid
If you are currently being treated or have recently been treated with mycophenolic acid, you should let your doctor know before receiving smallpox vaccine. Depending on the dose and length of time you have been on mycophenolic acid, you may be at risk for developing an infection from the vaccine or have a reduced response to the vaccine.

Conversely, if you have recently been vaccinated with smallpox vaccine, your doctor may choose to postpone treatment with mycophenolic acid for a few weeks. It is important to tell your doctor about all other medications you use, including vitamins and herbs. Do not stop using any medications without first talking to your doctor.
