What is haemophilus b and hepatitis B vaccine?

Haemophilus influenzae type b (Hib) is a serious disease caused by bacteria. It usually strikes children younger than 5 years old. Hib is spread from person to person. Children and adults may have the bacteria and not know it. If the germs stay in a child"s nose and throat, the child probably will not get sick. But sometimes the germs spread into the lungs or the bloodstream, and then Hib can cause serious problems. Haemophilus influenzae type b vaccine exposes the individual to a small amount of the bacteria (or to a protein from the bacteria) and causes the body to develop immunity to the disease.

Hepatitis B (HBV) is a serious disease caused by a virus. HBV is spread through contact with the blood and body fluids of an infected person. A person can get infected in several ways, such as: by having unprotected sex with an infected person; by sharing needles when injecting illegal drugs; by being stuck with a used needle on the job; and during birth when the virus passes from an infected mother to her baby. HBV vaccine exposes the individual to a small amount of the virus (or to a protein from the virus) and causes the body to develop immunity to the disease.

Hepatitis B infection can cause short-term (acute) illness that leads to loss of appetite; diarrhea and vomiting; tiredness; jaundice (yellow skin or eyes); or pain in the muscles, joints, and stomach. It can also cause long-term (chronic) illness that can lead to liver damage (cirrhosis), liver cancer, and death. About 1.25 million people in the United States have chronic hepatitis B infection.

Haemophilus b and hepatitis B vaccine is indicated for vaccination against disease caused by Haemophilus influenzae type b and against infection caused by all known subtypes of hepatitis B virus in infants 6 weeks to 15 months of age born of HbsAg negative mothers.

Haemophilus b and hepatitis B vaccine side effects

Getting haemophilus b and/or hepatitis B disease is much riskier than getting the vaccine.

Seek emergency medical attention or contact your doctor immediately if your infant or child experiences any of the following rare but serious side effects from haemophilus b and hepatitis B vaccine:
  • a serious allergic reaction including swelling of the lips, tongue, or face; difficulty breathing; closing of the throat; hives; paleness; weakness; dizziness; or a fast heart beat within a few minutes to a few hours after the shot;

  • high fever; or

  • behavior changes.

Other less serious side effects may be more likely to occur. Talk to your doctor if your infant or child experiences:

  • mild to moderate fever; or

  • redness, warmth, or swelling where the shot was given.

Side effects other than those listed here may also occur. Contact your doctor about any side effect that seems unusual or is especially bothersome.
