NOTES: As with any vaccine, this vaccine may not fully protect everyone who receives it.Keep vaccine records for yourself and all of your children, and after your children are grown, provide their records to them and their doctors. This will prevent unnecessary re-vaccinations.
MISSED DOSE: It is important that your child receive each vaccination as scheduled. Be sure to ask when your child should receive the next dose. It may help to make a note on your calendar to remind you. If your child misses a dose, call the doctor immediately to reschedule.
