Q. Will steroids decrease the effect of a vaccine?
 
A. Short term and low doses of glucocorticoids such as prednisone most likely would NOT interfere with the effectiveness of a vaccination. Animals on high doses of glucocorticoids and other immunosuppressants, however, may not respond adequately to a vaccination and may have an increased risk of adverse effects from the vaccine, especially if it is a modified live vaccine.
