HIB VACCINE – SPECIAL PRECAUTIONS
- The vaccine can be administered concurrently with other pediatric vaccines like DPT, MMR but at different sites.
- If your child is ill at the time the shot is scheduled, you should probably wait until he/she recovers before getting the Hib vaccine.
- Caution must be exercised in patients with coagulation disorders, acute febrile illness and immuno-suppressed patients where the vaccine may not be effective.
- Emergency drugs must be available to combat a serious allergic reaction.
