Can a freshly vaccinated 4 year old go around a 5 day old baby?
my new born and I are freshly out the hospital and my husband wants his 4 year old son to meet his brother. My concern is our 4 year old just got vaccinated yesterday. polio and hep.. is it safe for him to go around the new baby yet or should we wait and how long if so?

No one who has recently been vaccinated with either the polio vaccine or the Hep vaccine is contagious to anyone. else.
A person who was vaccinated against polio prior to 2000 may have received the oral polio vaccine, which was made from a live polio virus. Present day polio vaccines are made from a killed polio virus
.There are several injectable Hepatitis A vaccines. None contain a live virus.

No keep him away for 3 months at least.

I wouldn't have thought so, vaccine recipients can shed any live viruses in the vaccine for a week or two afterwards.
