Nothing specific: This material is a synthetic product of advanced laboratory production. It tricks the body into producing antibodies to HIB. Extra doses do not necessarily bring better protection, but they also have no specific negative effect (other than the pain of administration).

Nothing specific: This vaccine has been remarkable since it was introduced. The frequency of any side effects like fever, crying spells etc is near zero. Other than feel sore at the site, the kid should have no issues with the added dose but may have a little better immunity.
