What Act-HIB is and what it is used for ;

Act-HIB is a vaccine that helps protect your child against Haemophilus Influenzae type b infections. This vaccine does not provide protection against infections due to other types of Haemophilus influenzae or against cases of meningitis of other origins. The vaccine may be administered to children from 2 months of age to 5 years of age.Under no circumstances can the tetanus protein contained in this vaccine be used to replace the usual tetanus vaccination.When an injection of Act-HIB is given, the immune system (body’s natural defences) will protect against Haemophilus Influenzae type b infections. However, as with any vaccine, Act-HIB may not protect 100% of vaccinated individuals.
