This vaccine, also known as the Hib vaccine, can include a local reaction, urticaria (hives and skin rash), and Guillain-Barre Syndrome.

Haemophilus Influenzae Type B is a disease caused by bacteria, and usually strikes children under the age of 5. It is spread by being around other children or adults with the bacteria. It spreads from person to person. If it spreads to the lungs, it can cause serious problems. Nowadays, each year there are fewer than 55 cases and less than 5 deaths per year due to the Hib vaccine, according to the Centers for Disease Control.
