It is a contraindication to use DECAVAC (tetanus and diphtheria toxoids adsorbed) vaccine after anaphylaxis or other serious allergic reaction following a previous dose of this vaccine, any other tetanus or diphtheria toxoid containing vaccine, or any component of this vaccine (see DESCRIPTION). Because of uncertainty as to which component of the vaccine may be responsible, no further vaccination with diphtheria or tetanus components should be carried out. Alternatively, such individuals may be referred to an allergist for evaluation if further immunizations are to be considered.
