Other Comments

KINRIX may be used for the fifth dose in the DTaP immunization series and the fourth dose in the IPV.

The Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices (ACIP) recommends this as routine vaccination for use as the fifth dose in the DTaP series and the fourth dose in the IPV series in children who received DTaP (Infanrix) and/or DTaP-Hepatitis B-IPV (Pediarix) as the first 3 doses and DTaP (Infanrix) as the fourth dose. Whenever feasible, the same manufacturer should be used to provide the pertussis component; however, vaccination should not be deferred if a specific brand is not known or is not available.
