Posted On : 21 May 2023
Can the easy 5 vaccines be given as a booster dose at 18 months after 3 doses of easy five? Also what is the component of pertussis in easy five can it be given as a booster dose?
Expert Answer :
Easy 5 has DPT plus Hib plus Hepatitis B. For a booster dose at 18 months, we need to give only DPT plus Hib. So for booster, any combination vaccine which has DPT plus Hib should be given and not Easy5.
