Özet

Background: In Turkey, the Haemophilus influenzae type b-tetanus toxoid conjugate vaccine (Hib) was replaced by the combined diphtheria-tetanus-acellular pertussis and inactivated polio vaccine (DTaP-IPV/Hib) in 2008. This shift to the new schedule created different cohorts of vaccinated children as a consequence of the different schedules used. We evaluated the immunogenicity of the Hib vaccine in infants vaccinated with these different schedules.
