Safety Information

DAPTACEL? (Diphtheria and Tetanus Toxoids and Acellular Pertussis Vaccine Adsorbed) is a vaccine given to infants and children 6 weeks through 6 years (prior to 7th birthday) to prevent 3 serious diseases: diphtheria, tetanus (lockjaw), and pertussis (whooping cough). As with any vaccine, vaccination with DAPTACEL vaccine may not protect 100% of individuals. There are risks associated with all vaccines. The most common side effects with DAPTACEL vaccine are redness, swelling, and soreness or tenderness where the injection was given; fever, fussiness, and crying more than usual. Other side effects may occur. DAPTACEL vaccine should not be given to children who, after a previous dose of the vaccine, have had a serious allergic reaction (anaphylactic reaction) or encephalopathy not attributable to another cause. When administering an intramuscular injection, like DAPTACEL vaccine, to people with bleeding disorders, caution should be exercised because they may develop a serious bruise or collection of blood at the injection site.

For more information about DAPTACEL vaccine, refer to the Patient Information on and talk to your child's health-care provider.
