I want to decide best vaccination plan for my child. Till now she has received BCG, OPV & HepB at time of birth. I am concerned about the safety of pentavalent vaccines (DTaP-Hep B- HiB), due to many death cases reported in media. Please help to identify the safest vaccination plan and suggest safest brands.

For the record, any vaccine can cause severe anaphylaxis and death, but it is very rare. Millions of children are being vaccinated on day to day basis. You should not be unduly worried. There is a standard vaccination schedule recommended by the IAP and Government of India. Take vaccination, where there are facilities to treat any untoward reaction arising out of vaccination.
