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.
Fainting may occur after receiving intramuscular injections, such as this vaccine. It may occur with other symptoms including: blurred vision, numbness or tingling in your arms, hands, or feet, or seizures.
Check with your doctor right away if your child has a cough, difficulty with swallowing, dizziness, fast heartbeat, hives, itching, puffiness or swelling of the eyelids or around the eyes, face, lips, or tongue, shortness of breath, skin rash, tightness in the chest, or unusual tiredness or weakness. These could be symptoms of an allergic reaction to the 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 2 weeks after the vaccine is given.
It is important that your child's doctor should know about all other vaccines your child have recently received, including a flu shot.
Make sure your doctor knows if you are using medicines that weaken your immune system such as cancer medicines, radiation treatment, or steroids.
Menhibrix® vaccine is not a substitute for routine tetanus vaccination, and will not treat symptoms of meningococcal infection or flu if your child already has the disease.
