Dr. Kondekar,
My daughter was born on 02/10/2012. I have given her the following vaccinations :
03/10/2012 : bcg
         Hepatitis B1

17/11/12 : Rotavirus - Rotarix

5/12/12 : OPV1
         Hepatitis B2


19/1/2013: Rotavirus - Rotarix
Till date Hib has never been given. Also all the vaccines were given separately, no combination vaccines were given. I wanted to give her an easy five for the next time so that it would cover DTP3, Hib3 and Hepatitis B3. Is it right to do that? Because she has not received earlier does of Hib.

I had also read in some local news papers that there were some problems with easy five my ped suggested pentavac of the company serum. I need to no if its safe and has any side effects.

what should i do of the remaining doses of Hib. I want to reduce the number of pricks so i am trying to use combination vac please guide me.

Awaiting your reply.

Best for your child at this stage and for your requirements will be injection pentaxim which will cover hib and will not have hep b but will have polio injection in addition. Also it is painless and safer than pentavac or easyfive.
By giving next two doses with pentaxim, hib will be covered.
