Who is at highest risk for complications from Hib vaccine?
There is a gap in medical knowledge in terms of doctors being able to predict who will have an adverse reaction to Haemophilus influenzae type b vaccination, and who will not.1
Persons at highest risk for complications from Hib vaccine are those who are advised not to get Hib vaccine.
IMPORTANT NOTE: NVIC encourages you to become fully informed about Haemophilus Influenzae Type B (Hib) and the Hib vaccine by reading all sections in the Table of Contents, which contain many links and resources such as the manufacturer product information inserts, and to speak with one or more trusted health care professionals before making a vaccination decision for yourself or your child.
