Infections caused by Bacteria (HIB)
- Most vaccines against bacterial infections are effective at preventing disease
- Reactions can occur after vaccinations
- Vaccines are available against tuberculosis, diphtheria, tetanus, pertussis, Haemophilus influenzae type B, cholera, typhoid, and Streptococcus pneumoniae.
Hib vaccine prevents serious infections caused by a type of bacteria called Haemophilus influenzae type b. Such infections include meningitis (an infection of the covering of the brain and spinal cord), pneumonia (lung infection), and epiglottitis (a severe throat infection).
Hib vaccine is recommended for all children under five years old in the United States, and it is usually given to infants starting at two months old. The Hib vaccine can be combined with other vaccines. Some brands of vaccine contain Hib along with other vaccines in a single shot.
Children should get a Hib vaccine at:
- 2 months
- 4 months
- 6 months*
- 12 through 15 months
* Depending on what brand of Hib vaccine is used, your child might not need the dose at six months of age. Your doctor or nurse will tell you if this dose is needed.
If you miss a dose or get behind schedule, get the next dose as soon as you can. There is no need to start over. Hib vaccine may be given at the same time as other vaccines.
For Older Children and Adults
Children older than five years and adults usually do not need Hib vaccine. But it may be recommended for older children or adults with asplenia (no spleen) or sickle cell disease, before surgery to remove the spleen, or following a bone marrow transplant. It may also be recommended for people 5 to 18 years old with HIV. Ask your doctor for details.
