My boy 6 month now and in China. there is no DTaP-HB-IPV-Hib +Hepatitis B here but only DTaP-HB-IPV-Hib. Do we need to have another Hepatitis B?he had on shot Hepatitis-b at birth
The DTaP-HB-IPV-Hib vaccine that you refer to twice in your question protects against hepatitis B. The HB stands for hepatitis B.
As per BC recommendations, children who get the hepatitis B vaccine at birth still need three more doses of the vaccine at 2, 4 and 6 months of age. These three doses are routinely given as the combination DTaP-HB-IPV-Hib vaccine.
It is important that you keep a record of any immunizations your child receives.
If you have further questions, and for more information, we recommend that you follow up with your immunizing health care provider.
