It is typically given as a single dose. This booster vaccine is approved for use in children four to six years old. It works by "tricking" the body into thinking it has been exposed to these different infections.
 
Side effects of Kinrix may include fever, drowsiness, and injection site reactions. To ensure your child's safety, make sure your child's healthcare provider has up-to-date information on any other medications your child is taking, as well as any allergies they may have. It's also important for your child's healthcare provider to know 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 any vaccine before
  • A moderate or severe illness.
