It is very important that your child return to your doctor’s office at the right time for each dose. Be sure to notify your doctor of any side effects that occur after your child receives this vaccine.

This vaccine may interfere with laboratory tests that check for Hib disease. Make sure your doctor knows that your child received the vaccine if a severe infection occurs during the 2 weeks after the vaccine is given.

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