• Combination Vaccines
  • General Issues

Can we switch back and forth from separate vaccines at one visit to combination vaccines at another visit? For example, if a child is given separate DTaP, IPV, Hib, and HepB vaccines during her 2-month visit, could we give her either DTaP-IPV/Hib (Pentacel) or DTaP-HepB-IPV (Pediarix) at her 4-month visit?

Switching between combination and single-antigen vaccines poses no problem if you maintain the recommended minimum intervals for all vaccines and the vaccines are licensed for the age of the patient.
