In brief: Yes
It depends on the specific vaccine.
The only reason common to all vaccines, is if you are allergic to the components of that vaccine.

In brief: Yes but very few.
There are some reasons depending on the vaccine, called "absolute contraindications.
" these are very few and your doctor should know if you have a medical contraindication, that is, a reason to not give a vaccine. Philosophical and religious reasons should not be confused with the very rare contraindications.
