The 6-in-1 primary vaccine protects infants from six serious infectious diseases:
Pertussis (whooping cough)
Hib (Haemophilus influenzae type b).
Combined immunisations minimise the number of injections required and enable maximum protection to begin as soon as possible after birth.
Common side effects from the 6-in-1 vaccine include pain, redness and swelling at the injection site. Serious reactions to 6-in-1 vaccines are rare. Your healthcare practitioner can tell you more about the side effects associated with these vaccines.
It is recommended that infants receive the 6-in-1 vaccine at 2, 4, and 6 months of age. These immunisations are provided for free through the National Immunisation Program.
Speak with a healthcare professional about your child’s vaccination needs.
