  • DTaP-IPV-Hib-HepB (Vaxelis, MCP Vaccine Company)

Can Vaxelis (DTaP-IPV-Hib-HepB) be used for older children behind on their immunization schedule?

Yes. Vaxelis may be used for children younger than age 5 years requiring a catch-up primary series, using appropriate minimum intervals. It is not approved as the booster dose of DTaP [dose 4 or 5] or IPV [dose 4] or Hib [dose 4]. If Vaxelis is inadvertently given as a booster dose, it may count as valid and does not need to be repeated.
