Haemophilus influenzae type B (Hib) vaccineThe Hib vaccine has been given as part of the UK national immunisation schedule since 1992. When given at 2, 3 and 4 months (as on the NHS), or as a two-rise primary schedule (as often used at BabyJabs) the vaccine offers good protection, but this only lasts for about a year; a booster early in the second year of life is necessary to maintain protection until the age of 5.
Some researchers believe that the Hib vaccine can occasionally cause diabetes in children, though others have found no evidence of a link.
The vaccine can cause a fever, loss of appetite, restlessness, vomiting, diarrhoea and unusual crying.
