Haemophilus B Oligos-Dipht Vac IM

Uses
This vaccine helps protect young children from Haemophilus influenzae type b (Hib) infection. Hib is a bacterial infection that can cause serious illness, including brain infection (meningitis). Children younger than age 5 are at highest risk for infection. Vaccination is the best way to protect against this life-threatening disease. Vaccines work by causing the body to produce its own protection (antibodies).This vaccine is not usually used in children over the age of 5 or in adults.
Notes
  • Do not share this medication with others.Consult the doctor or pharmacist about the temporary use of acetaminophen to treat pain and fever due to this vaccine.There are various combinations of vaccines available.
  • Based on your child's age, vaccination history, and previous reaction to vaccines, your health care professional will determine the most appropriate vaccines.
  • Discuss the risks and benefits of vaccination with your health care provider.History of infection with Hib does not always protect against future infections with Hib bacteria.
  • Your child should still receive this vaccine if your doctor orders it.

Storage
  • Refrigerate between 36-46 degrees F (2-8 degrees C) away from light and moisture.
  • Do not freeze.
  • Discard the product if it has been frozen.
  • Check the product label for information on how soon the vaccine must be used after being mixed.
  • Keep all medicines away from children and pets.


How To Use
  • Read the Vaccine Information Materials provided by your health care provider or pharmacist before the first vaccination and each time thereafter.
  • If you have any questions regarding the information, consult your doctor or pharmacist.This medication is given by injection into a muscle by a health care professional.
  • It is usually given in the upper thigh, or in the upper arm in older children.
  • This vaccine should not be injected directly into a vein.Follow all directions for proper use.
  • Before using, check this product visually for particles or discoloration.
  • If either is present, do not use the liquid.
  • Shake the medication to dissolve before using.
  • Discard any unused vaccine remaining in the vial or syringe.A series of injections is needed to provide the best protection.
  • It is very important that your child receive all the injections ordered by the doctor, or the vaccine may not work as well.
  • Keep all scheduled medical appointments.Hib vaccine can be given at the same time as the other usual childhood vaccinations (e.g., diphtheria/tetanus/pertussis, hepatitis, polio) either in the same injection or using a separate needle and injection site, depending on the types of vaccine being given.

Side Effects
  • Pain, swelling, and redness at the injection site may occur.
  • Drowsiness, irritability/crying, loss of appetite, diarrhea, fever, or vomiting may also occur.
  • If any of these effects persist or worsen, notify the doctor or pharmacist promptly.Remember that your doctor has prescribed this medication because the benefit to your child is greater than the risk of side effects.

Precautions

  • Before using this medicine, consult the doctor or pharmacist if your child has: high fever, moderate/severe acute illness.Before using this medication, tell the doctor or pharmacist your child's medical history, especially of: bleeding disorders, history of Guillain-Barre syndrome, a weakened immune system (e.g., due to cancer, HIV, leukemia, lymphoma, radiation treatment), vaccination history including previous reactions to any vaccines.Patients with Hodgkin's disease should receive the vaccine at least 10-14 days before beginning treatment or wait at least 3 months after chemotherapy is stopped.This vaccine is not recommended for use during pregnancy and is not usually used in adults.It is not known whether this drug passes into breast milk.

Drug Interactions
  • Your healthcare professionals (e.g., doctor or pharmacist) may already be aware of any possible drug interactions and may be monitoring your child for it.
  • Do not start, stop or change the dosage of any medicine before checking with them first.Before your child receives this vaccine, tell the doctor or pharmacist of all prescription and nonprescription/herbal products the child may use, especially of: "blood thinners" (e.g., warfarin, heparins), corticosteroids (e.g., hydrocortisone, prednisone), cancer chemotherapy, drugs that lower the immune system (e.g., cyclosporine, tacrolimus).This medication may interfere with certain laboratory tests.
