Abstract We evaluated the tolerance to immunization of 64 very low birth weight preterm infants. Thirty-three of the infants experienced a cardiorespiratory event after the first vaccination, and 6 of these 33 (18%) had a recurrence after the second vaccination, including 2 infants previously discharged to home. A cardiorespiratory event associated with the first vaccination was the sole risk factor for recurrence identified.
