ActHIB Vaccine Information

ActHIB® (Hib vaccine) is an injected vaccine that is typically given as four separate doses during early childhood. It is used to protect against Haemophilus influenzae type b (Hib), a type of bacteria that can cause potentially life-threatening diseases. ActHIB is approved for use in children 2 to 18 months of age.
 
This vaccine is not appropriate for everyone; before giving it, your child's healthcare provider needs complete information on your child's medical history and what medicines they are taking. Redness, swelling, or warmth at the injection site are some of the most commonly reported side effects. However, most children tolerate the vaccine quite well.
