Haemophil B PS Cnj-Hep B Vacc IM



This medication is used in infants to help prevent infection from a certain bacteria (Haemophilus influenzae type b) and the hepatitis B virus. Haemophilus influenzae b bacteria can cause a serious, sometimes fatal brain infection (meningitis) and lung infection (pneumonia). Hepatitis B infection can cause serious problems including liver failure, persistent hepatitis B infection, cirrhosis, and liver cancer. Protecting against these infections can prevent these problems.This vaccine contains killed Haemophilus bacteria. The hepatitis B is a man-made piece of the virus. This vaccine does not contain live virus, so your infant cannot get either of these infections from the vaccine. This vaccine causes the body to make immune defensive substances (antibodies) that can protect you from these infections.This vaccine is recommended for all infants 6 weeks to 15 months old who are born to mothers who do not have current hepatitis B infection.This vaccine is not for use in adults.

Notes
  • Laboratory and/or medical tests (e.g., hepatitis B antibody levels) may be performed periodically for some patients at risk of a poor response to the vaccine.
  • Consult your child's doctor for more details.

Storage
  • Store refrigerated between 36-46 degrees F (2-8 degrees C) away from light.
  • Do not freeze.
  • Discard any product that has been frozen.
  • Keep all medicines away from children and pets.


How To Use
  • This vaccine is usually given by injection into a muscle by a health care professional.
  • This vaccine is a slightly milky, white suspension.
  • Before giving this medication, inspect it visually for particles or discoloration.
  • If either is present, do not use the liquid.
  • Shake the vial well before giving the dose.
  • Do not dilute.
  • Use the full recommended dose of the vaccine.
  • Discard any remaining vaccine left in single-dose vials.A series of 3 injections is usually used when the infant is aged 2 months, 4 months, and 12 to 15 months.
  • Your doctor will give you a vaccination schedule, which must be followed closely for best effectiveness.
  • If your infant has an infection with fever at the time a vaccination is scheduled, your doctor may choose to delay the injection until he/she is better.If your infant is exposed to hepatitis B at birth, a different vaccine and other treatments should be used.
  • Consult your doctor for more information.

Side Effects
  • Pain/redness/swelling at the injection site, fever, irritability, increased crying, loss of appetite, and increased sleeping may occur.
  • Less common side effects may include bruising at the injection site, vomiting, runny nose, stuffy nose, cold symptoms, cough, and diarrhea.
  • If any of these effects persist or worsen, tell your infant's doctor or pharmacist promptly.Remember that your child's doctor has prescribed this medication because he or she has judged that the benefit to your infant is greater than the risk of side effects.
  • Many infants using this medication do not have serious side effects.
  • Report all side effects to the doctor before your infant receives the next injection.Tell your infant's doctor immediately if any of these unlikely but serious side effects occur: unusually fast/irregular heartbeat, fainting.Tell your infant's doctor immediately if any of these rare but very serious side effects occur: inability to make muscles of the legs/arms/face work (paralysis), seizures, easy bruising/bleeding, mental/mood changes (e.g., unusual behavior, severe drowsiness, stiff neck, closing eyes/turning away from bright light).A very serious allergic reaction to this drug is rare.
  • However, seek immediate medical attention if you notice your infant having any symptoms of a serious allergic reaction, including: rash, itching, swelling, trouble breathing.If you notice other effects not listed above, contact your doctor or pharmacist.

Precautions
  • Although you may not know whether your infant has any allergies at 2 months of age, tell your infant's doctor about any allergies you may know of, especially reactions to other vaccines; or allergy to yeast; or any other known allergies.
  • Vaccine vials may use latex rubber stoppers.
  • Tell your infant's doctor if you know if he/she is allergic to latex.Before using this medication, tell your doctor or pharmacist your infant's medical history, especially of: bleeding problems (e.g., hemophilia, low platelets, anticoagulant treatment), current illness with fever.If your child has decreased immune function from other medications (see also Drug Interactions) or other illness (e.g., HIV, leukemia, lymphoma, other cancer), the child's body may not make enough antibodies to protect them from Haemophilus influenza b or hepatitis B infection.
  • Antibody levels should be checked after the vaccine series.

Missed Dose
  • It is important for your child to receive each vaccination as scheduled.
  • Be sure to ask when each dose should be received and make a note on a calendar to help you remember.

Drug Interactions
  • Your infant's doctor or pharmacist may already be aware of any possible drug interactions and may be monitoring your child for them.
  • Do not start, stop, or change the dosage of any of your child's medicines before checking with your doctor or pharmacist first.Before your infant receives this medication, tell your doctor or pharmacist of all prescription and nonprescription/herbal products your child may use, especially of medications that can decrease immune function: corticosteroids (e.g., prednisone), cancer chemotherapy, organ transplant drugs (e.g., cyclosporine, tacrolimus).If your infant is currently receiving any of these medications listed above, tell your infant's doctor or pharmacist before starting the Haemophilus influenzae b/hepatitis B vaccine series.Other vaccines may be given at the same time as this vaccine, but should be given with separate syringes and at different injection sites.Certain lab tests that use a certain lab method (latex agglutination) may be affected by this medication for at least 30 days after the injection, possibly causing false test results.
  • Make sure that all of your infant's doctors and laboratory personnel know that your infant has received this vaccine.
