Haemophilus influenzae type B (Hib) vaccineThe Hib vaccine has been given as part of the UK national immunisation schedule since 1992. The NHS schedule includes a total of four doses of Hib vaccine, given at 2, 3, 4 and 12 months. At BabyJabs we often give one, two or three doses which offers good protection provided given at the appropriate ages. 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.
