At 16-18 month booster dose of Dtp/Dtap,Hib,IPV plan to give my baby but as per internet surffing and my ped.guideline only one combine vaccine available is pentaxim by panacea biotech in market and it is banned in many country. So, what we do is confused. is give easy six or hexaxim or separate all vaccine or any other brand combined vaccine available
Easysix vaccine is obviously the best choice as it contains the whole cell pertussis antigen which gives better immunity. In case of unavailability of this vaccine, pentavalent vaccine, Easyfive, Pentavac PFS or Quinvaxem and IPV can be given separately. Also, quadrivalent dtwP vaccines like Easyfour or Tetract Hib vaccine can be given with separate vaccinations for Hepatitis B and IPV. You may also go with hexaxim if more no of pricks to your baby bothers you. Primary vaccination should be preferably with regular dtwp antigen containing combination vaccines. For booster doses painless vaccination may be opted.
