Children with chronic kidney disease (CKD) are associated with high morbitity and mortality due to infection as one of the leading causes. This happens as a result of the impaired immune response in CKD. Vaccination is proven as a safe and effective technique in preventing infection. It can be given to children with CKD according to the national schedule with several considerations. Level of protection after vaccination in children with CKD decreased faster than in normal children, thus, it is recommended to do a serial monitoring of the antibody titer and administer booster vaccine if necessary. Live attenuated vaccination need to be delayed in those who are recently underwent kidney transplantation or recieving a high dose of immunosuppresant drugs.
