CONTRAINDICATIONS

Hypersensitivity

A severe allergic reaction (eg, anaphylaxis) after a previous dose of DAPTACEL (diphtheria and tetanus toxoids and acellular pertussis vaccine adsorbed) vaccine or any other tetanus toxoid, diphtheria toxoid, or pertussis-containing vaccine, or any other component of this vaccine is a contraindication to administration of DAPTACEL vaccine. [See DESCRIPTION.] Because of uncertainty as to which component of the vaccine may be responsible, none of the components should be administered. Alternatively, such individuals may be referred to an allergist for evaluation if further immunizations are to be considered.

Encephalopathy

Encephalopathy (eg, coma, decreased level of consciousness, prolonged seizures) within 7 days of a previous dose of a pertussis containing vaccine that is not attributable to another identifiable cause is a contraindication to administration of any pertussis-containing vaccine (1), including DAPTACEL (diphtheria and tetanus toxoids and acellular pertussis vaccine adsorbed) vaccine.

Progressive Neurologic Disorder

Progressive neurologic disorder, including infantile spasms, uncontrolled epilepsy, or progressive encephalopathy is a contraindication to administration of any pertussis-containing vaccine (1) including DAPTACEL (diphtheria and tetanus toxoids and acellular pertussis vaccine adsorbed) vaccine. Pertussis vaccine should not be administered to individuals with such conditions until a treatment regimen has been established and the condition has stabilized. (1)
