HIB vaccine is available in many forms & given in multiple doses to children under 5 years--often started at age 6-8 weeks.
The vaccine may cause redness, slight swelling, even fever. The disease itself is much more serious if it strikes. Haemophilus influenzae type b (Hib) disease can cause meningitis, epiglottitis, pneumonia, arthritis, & cellulitis. Cases much reduced since vaccine.
