Boostrix Injection consists of Combined diphtheria and tetanus toxoids, acellular pertussis, hepatitis B (recombinant), inactivated poliomyelitis, and adsorbed conjugated Haemophilus influenzae type b vaccine. It is a vaccine used for protecting children against respiratory, skin disease, whooping cough, polio, hepatitis B and influenza diseases. These diseases are the chief cause of death in children below 5 years of age but are easily preventable with the proper and timely use of vaccines. 


Combined vaccines are highly preferred for infant vaccinations as they simplify the vaccination schedule. Report to your physician right away if your baby experiences a high temperature, shock, fits, or continuously crying within 48 hours of vaccination.
