Vaccines are products of biological origin, which, by inducing immunity, prevent or alleviate infections and infectious diseases. The risk of infection is particularly high in patients with autoimmune inflammatory rheumatic diseases (AIIRD) because associated diseases and immunosuppressive therapies increase the contagious burden. The European League Against Rheumatism(EULAR) helps us in planning vaccinations for this group of patients, and at the end of 2019 updated their recommendations. EULAR addressed them to all doctors involved in the care of patients with AIIRD. The 2019 update for vaccination in adult patients with AIIRD is divided into six overarching principles and nine recommendations. According to the opinion of Polish experts, immunization in children with rheumatic diseases can follow the same recommendations [1].
