Kawasaki disease is a relatively uncommon illness that mostly affects children under five years of age. Blood vessels throughout the body become inflamed causing a collection of symptoms. There is no scientific evidence of vaccines causing Kawasaki disease, however precautions must be taken with live vaccines if an episode of Kawasaki disease has been treated with intravenous immunoglobulin (IVIG).
