CONTRAINDICATIONS

Hypersensitivity

Severe allergic reaction (e.g., anaphylaxis) after a previous dose of any diphtheria toxoid, tetanus toxoid, pertussis or poliovirus-containing vaccine, or to any component of KINRIX (diptheria and tetanus toxoids and acellular pertussis adsorbed and inactivated poliovirus vaccine) , including neomycin and polymyxin B, is a contraindication to administration of KINRIX [see DESCRIPTION]. Because of the uncertainty as to which component of the vaccine might be responsible, no further vaccination with any of these components should be given. Alternatively, such individuals may be referred to an allergist for evaluation if immunization with any of these components is considered.

Encephalopathy

Encephalopathy (e.g., coma, decreased level of consciousness, prolonged seizures) within 7 days of administration of a previous dose of a pertussis-containing vaccine that is not attributable to another identifiable cause is a contraindication to administration of any pertussis­containing vaccine, including KINRIX (diptheria and tetanus toxoids and acellular pertussis adsorbed and inactivated poliovirus 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, including KINRIX (diptheria and tetanus toxoids and acellular pertussis adsorbed and inactivated poliovirus vaccine) . Pertussis vaccine should not be administered to individuals with such conditions until a treatment regimen has been established and the condition has stabilized.
