Most joint complaints were mild in intensity with a mean duration of 1. Acceptable booster responses to each of the pertussis antigens were also demonstrated, i.
No interference in tetanus and diphtheria seroprotection rates and responses to influenza vaccine, detoxified PT, FIM or FHA were observed when Adacel vaccine was administered concomitantly with TIV compared to separate administration. Most local reactions occurred within the first 3 days after vaccination with a mean duration of less than 3 days.
Sera were obtained prior to and weeks after Adacel vaccine, as well as weeks after the TIV.

Persistent nodules at the site of injection have been reported following the use of adsorbed products. The National Vaccine Injury Compensation Program, established by the National Childhood Vaccine Injury Act ofrequires physicians and other health-care providers who administer vaccines to maintain permanent vaccination records of the manufacturer and lot number of the vaccine administered in presceibing vaccine recipient’s permanent medical record along with the date of administration of the vaccine and the name, address and title of the person administering the vaccine.

The adverse reaction information from clinical trials does, however, provide a basis for identifying the adverse events that appear to be related to vaccine use and for approximating rates of those events. A total of 5, individuals years of age inclusive 3, adolescents years of age and 2, adults years received a single dose of Adacel vaccine.
Because of inforamtion as to which component of the vaccine may be responsible, none of the components should be administered.

Alternatively, such individuals may be referred to an allergist for evaluation if further immunizations are to be considered.

Concomitant immunization of Adacel vaccine with Hepatitis B vaccine did not result in reduced antibody responses to any of the antigens from either vaccine. The cut-off value for tetanus was 2.
The rates of unsolicited adverse events reported from days post-vaccination were comparable between the two groups, as were the rates of unsolicited adverse events from day 28 through 6 months.
Certain neurological conditions have been reported in temporal association with some tetanus toxoid containing vaccines or tetanus and diphtheria toxoid containing vaccines.
