Will the vaccine react with any existing medications that I am taking? Is the vaccine less effective in individuals with a lowered immune system? Do the vaccines act differently in people of different ethnicities? Is there any impact on fertility? When are children with inherited metabolic diseases going to be vaccinated? Do you need to have the same vaccine for both doses?
