Five in one vaccine to be injected free for infants

Five in one vaccine will be shot for over two month old Vietnam neonates next June

Five in one vaccine will be free given to over two-month old babies under the National Expanded Program on Immunization next June, said a health official.


The five in one vaccine against diphtheria, whooping cough, tetanus, hepatitis B and Hib is supported by the Global Alliance for Vaccines and Immunization (GAVI) Partners Forum, according to Dr. Nguyen Tran Hien, director of the Central Institute for Hygiene and Epidemiology.


The five in one vaccine tested by the World Health Organization has not been available in Vietnam before. Babies from two to four month old will receive three shoots.


Medical experts hope the five in one vaccine administered for neonates will reduce accidents after inoculation as it has a fewer shoots.
