Tell your health care provider right away if your child has any of these symptoms soon after receiving an injection. Sitting or lying down may relieve symptoms.

PRECAUTIONS: Before using this vaccine, tell the health care professional if your child is allergic to it; or to yeast or latex; or if your child have any other allergies. This product may contain inactive ingredients, which can cause allergic reactions or other problems. Talk to your pharmacist for more details.
Before using this vaccine, tell the health care professional your child's medical history, especially of: bleeding problems (e.g., hemophilia, low platelets, anticoagulant treatment), current illness with fever.
If your child has decreased immune function from other medications (see also Drug Interactions) or other illness (e.g., HIV, leukemia, lymphoma, other cancer), the child's body may not make enough antibodies to protect them from Haemophilus influenza b or hepatitis B infection. Antibody levels should be checked after the vaccine series.
