It is very important that your child return to your doctor’s office at the right time for the second and third dose. Be sure to notify your child's doctor of any unwanted effects that occur after he or she receives the vaccine.

If your child develops a skin rash, hives, or any allergic reaction after receiving this vaccine, tell your child's doctor right away.

Tell your child's doctor right away if your child is allergic to latex rubber. The vaccine vials may contain dry natural latex rubber. This may cause an allergic reaction in patients who are sensitive to latex.

Before your child have any medical tests, tell the medical doctor in charge that your child is receiving this vaccine. The results of some tests may be affected by this vaccine.

This vaccine may not protect your child against diseases caused by haemophilus influenzae type b or hepatitis B infection if your child is already infected with the virus at the time he or she receives the shot.
