PENTAXIM ban worrisome

1 to 3 years

Created by

I had given all 3 doses and one booster of Pentaxim for my son who is almost 3. Now with the ban, I am very much worried though I read up that it is only less effective against Pertussis. Have any of been through this and enquired your paediatrician on this matter? what can be done now? Any idea if there is a separate vaccine for Pertussis?

Hi Ayshwarya Ravichandran There is an easy replacement available for pentaxim. But you should check it with your pediatrician. and i would suggest that for vaccinations you should only trust your doc/pediatrician.

They say it isn't as effective as the painful one against Pertussis
