Throughout the 6-month follow-up period in the principal safety study, serious adverse events were reported in 1. If passive protection against tetanus is required, Tetanus Immune Globulin Human TIG may be administered at a separate site with a separate needle and syringe.

After shaking, the vaccine is a white, homogenous, cloudy suspension. These include anaphylaxis or anaphylactic shock within 7 days; brachial neuritis within 28 days; an acute complication or sequelae including death of an illness, disability, injury, or condition referred to above, or any events that would contraindicate further doses of vaccine, according to this Adacel vaccine package insert.

Corynebacterium diphtheriae is grown in modified Mueller’s growth medium. Serological presdribing indicate that naturally acquired immunity to tetanus toxin does not occur in the US.

Injection Site Pain Any The National Vaccine Injury Compensation Program, established by the National Childhood Vaccine Injury Act ofrequires physicians and prescrubing health-care providers who administer vaccines to maintain permanent vaccination records of the manufacturer and lot number of the vaccine administered in the vaccine recipient’s permanent medical record along with the date of administration of the vaccine pgescribing the name, address and title of presscribing person administering the vaccine.


The primary measures of immunogenicity were a the percentage of participants attaining an antibody level of at least 0. The systemic intoxication is caused by diphtheria exotoxin, an extracellular protein metabolite of toxigenic strains of C diphtheriae. The use of Adacel vaccine as a primary series, or to complete the primary series, has not been studied. The cut-off value for diphtheria was 2.

The acellular pertussis vaccine components are obtained from Bordetella pertussis cultures grown in Stainer-Scholte medium 1 modified by the addition of casamino acids and dimethyl-beta-cyclodextrin. Among adults the rates of pain, after receipt of Adacel vaccine or Td vaccine, did not significantly differ. A total of 5, individuals years of age inclusive 3, adolescents years of age and 2, adults years received a single dose of Adacel vaccine. The cut-off value for tetanus was 2. From day 14 to the end of the trial, i.

No interference in tetanus and diphtheria seroprotection rates and responses to influenza vaccine, detoxified PT, FIM or FHA were observed when Adacel vaccine was administered concomitantly with TIV compared to separate administration.

For immunization of persons 6 weeks through 6 years of age against diphtheria, tetanus and pertussis refer lnformation manufacturers’ package inserts for DTaP vaccines. Acceptable booster responses to each of the pertussis antigens were also demonstrated, i.

Adacel TDAP – FDA prescribing information, side effects and uses

Information regarding adverse events that occurred in the 6 month post-vaccination time period was obtained from the participant via informafion. The Act further requires the health-care professional to report to the US Department of Health and Human Services the occurrence following immunization of any event set forth in the Vaccine Injury Table.


The infirmation of Adacel vaccine was evaluated in 4 clinical studies. Most joint complaints were mild in intensity with a mean duration of 1.

The principal immunogenicity study was a comparative, multi-center, randomized, observer-blind, controlled trial which enrolled 4, participants; 2, adolescents years of age and 2, adults years of age. The following adverse events have been spontaneously reported during the post-marketing use of Adacel vaccine in the US and other countries. Thus, universal primary immunization, with subsequent maintenance of adequate antitoxin levels by means of appropriately timed boosters, is necessary to protect all age groups.

C diphtheriae may cause both localized and generalized disease.

Other neurological conditions that have been reported include: Clinicians should refer to guidelines for tetanus prophylaxis in routine wound management. A serum antitoxin level of 0. Concomitant immunization of Adacel vaccine with Hepatitis B vaccine did not result in reduced antibody responses to any of the antigens from either vaccine. Before adacfl of Adacel vaccine, the patient’s current health status and medical history should be reviewed in order to determine whether any contraindications exist and to assess the benefits and risks of vaccination.

Following immunization, protection lasts at least 10 years. Threshold or “cut-off” values for antibody concentrations to each antigen were established based on the 95 th percentile of the pre-vaccination antibody concentrations observed in previous clinical trials.

Spores of C tetani are ubiquitous. Antitoxin levels of at least 0. Adacel vaccine is indicated for active booster immunization ptescribing the prevention of tetanus, diphtheria and pertussis as a single dose in persons 11 through 64 years of age.

No adverse effects on pregnancy, parturition, lactation, embryo-fetal or pre-weaning development were observed.
