I had dtap vaccine last year and only 3/4 of dose went in. A bit squirted on my arm. Will i still be covered?
Just got dtap vaccine and a lot of the vaccine liquid sprayed out where the needle and vial connect. They had to give me half of another dose.Why did that happen?
Vaccine issue: Would think the needle was not securely fastened to the hub of the syringe. That would be my guess. Not uncommon, but should not happen. WHen one does an injection, must take their time and do it well. Sorry that happened. Hope this helps. Best of luck ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Depends: If the patient has never received a dose, or is an infant with an immature immune system, the benefit of a single dose is variable.Months for the infant, and maybe a year or so for the adult.

Not available: Separate component dtap is not available here.Efforts to combine them in a way that would be safe & effective continued over several decades & has produced a wonderful product. I find those who want to split vaccines to follow the "educated" drivel put out by playboy playmates & other self appointed champions of the vaccine hater crowd to be a sad lot. They have killed more babies than they help. ...Read more
Yes: If you have a vaccine record from a dependable source and that record verifies an up to date schedule, you can skip it.However, those from foreign countries often contain falsified entries just to meet exit requirements. I re-start the series appropriate for that child at that age as if they received no immunizations at all. There is no risks to doubling up on vaccines unless the kid is allergic ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Depends on variables: The benefit provided by this combination vaccine is maintained when you complete the primary series and boosters when appropriate. Most complete their primary series in childhood, with a booster in early adolescence.
