Single-Dose Hib Vaccine, Lyophilized - Key Information and Administration Guidelines

Our Lyophilized, Single-Dose Hib Vaccine plays a crucial role in global immunization efforts, offering a robust defense against Haemophilus influenzae type b (Hib), a bacterium known to cause severe infections in children.

The vaccine contains a chemically conjugated capsular polysaccharide, meticulously derived from the Hib bacterium itself. Controlled cultivation and cutting-edge ultrafiltration techniques ensure the production of a highly refined antigen, the backbone of our immunizing agent. Each vial provides a freeze-dried, monovalent dose containing 10mg of the Hib conjugate.

Administration and Dosing Schedule

The vaccine follows a single dose administration of 0.5ml, delivered intramuscularly. It is injected into the deltoid muscle in older children, while for infants, the injection site is the anterolateral thigh. Importantly, the vaccine needs reconstitution using the provided diluent, and once reconstituted, it should be used in the same day to ensure its efficacy.

Our Hib vaccine follows a comprehensive immunization course including three doses that are administered most effectively alongside the DTP series to children aged six weeks or older. Dosage intervals should ideally be kept within 4-8 weeks. Additionally, this Hib vaccine can be co-administered with a wide range of other vaccines such as BCG, measles, polio, hepatitis B, and yellow fever, to ensure a comprehensive immunization protection.

Storage and Transportation

The vaccine's integrity is maintainable with strict storage and transportation temperatures ranging from 2u00b0C to 8u00b0C. The diluent should never be frozen.
