Kinrix

Drug Interactions

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

What Should I Tell My Healthcare Provider?

You should talk to a healthcare provider before your child receives this 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 any vaccine before
  • A moderate or severe illness
  • A brain or nervous system disorder
  • Any allergies, including to foods, dyes, or preservatives.
     
Make sure to tell the healthcare provider about all of the medicines your child is taking, including prescription and nonprescription medicines, vitamins, and herbal supplements.

How Should Kinrix Be Stored?

Kinrix should be stored in the refrigerator. The vaccine should never be frozen.
 

Available Forms

The vaccine is available in 0.5-mL, single-use vials or disposable prefilled syringes (without needles). The prefilled syringes contain dry natural latex rubber; the vials do not.
 
The vials do not contain latex. There are two different types of prefilled syringes; one definitely contains latex, and the other might contain latex. If your child has a severe latex allergy, it is probably best for your healthcare provider to use Kinrix from a vial, not a prefilled syringe.
