Haemophilus influenzae type b (Hib)


WHO recommends the inclusion of conjugate Hib vaccines in all infant immunization programmes using any of the following schedules: three primary doses without a booster (3p+0); two primary doses plus a booster (2p+1); and three primary doses with a booster (3p+1). The age at first dose and the number of primary doses should be set after consideration of the local epidemiology, vaccine presentation (Hib conjugate monovalent vaccine or Hib conjugate vaccine in combination with other antigens) and how this fits into the overall routine immunization schedule.
