This vaccine is offered to all babies at 1 year of age.
It is safe for this vaccine to be administered at the same time as MMR, Meningitis B and pneumonia.
This vaccine is not for older children and adults.
HIB is Haemophilus Influenza type B which can cause pneumonia, meningitis and blood poisoning.
