Hello sir I have given pentaxim for my baby at 6 weeks and 10 weeks and hexaxim at 14 weeks. Now im really worried regarding the immune status. Can I switch to painful vaccine for further vaccination. If I opt for painful vaccine for booster dose will the immune status be compensated. Pls give me suggestions sir.

It is pertussis part of vaccines which is painless (lesser painful) but immunity is short lived in compare to painful but long lasting. I personally advice for painful type. U may opt painful ie DTPw containing vaccine.
