Side Effects of Infanrix

Just like any vaccine, Infanrix may cause side effects. However, not everyone who receives the vaccine will experience problems. In fact, most children tolerate it well, with only minor reactions, if any. If side effects do occur, in most cases, they are minor and either require no treatment or can be treated easily by you or your healthcare provider. Serious side effects are less common.
 
Some of the most common side effects include but are not limited to:
 
  • Fussiness or irritability
  • Drowsiness
  • Loss of appetite
  • Injection site reactions such as pain, swelling, or redness
  • Fever.

Drug Interactions

Infanrix can potentially interact with a few medications (see Infanrix Drug Interactions).
 

What Should I Tell My Child's Healthcare Provider?

You should talk to a healthcare provider before your child receives the Infanrix vaccine if your child has:
 
  • An immune-suppressing condition such as HIV or AIDS, diabetes, or cancer
  • A bleeding disorder
  • Had any sort of a reaction to a vaccine in the past
  • A moderate or severe illness
  • A brain or nervous system disorder
  • Any allergies, including allergies to foods, dyes, or preservatives.
     
Make sure to tell the healthcare provider about all medicines your child is taking, including prescription and nonprescription medicines, vitamins, and herbal supplements.
