Drug Interactions
The simultaneous/concomitant administration of immunoglobulins with this vaccine in two different injection sites may be performed. The seroprotection rates are not modified, but the antibody titres may be lower than those obtained when the vaccine is administered alone.
This vaccine can be used as a booster dose in subjects who have received primary vaccination with another inactivated hepatitis A vaccine.
Avaxim 80 U Pediatric: In case of simultaneous administration, this vaccine must not be mixed with other vaccines in the same syringe. The vaccine may be administered simultaneously, in two different injection sites, with the routine booster vaccine of the child during the second year of life, i.e. various vaccines containing one or more of following valences: diphtheria, tetanus, pertussis (acellular or whole cells), Haemophilus influenzae of type b and inactivated or oral poliomyelitis.
This vaccine can be administered simultaneously, but at two different injection sites, with a vaccine against measles, mumps and rubella.
Avaxim 160 U: When concomitant administration is deemed necessary, AVAXIM 160 U must not be mixed with other vaccines in a same syringe: the other vaccines must be administered in separate sites using separate syringes and needles.
As the vaccine is inactivated, association with other inactivated vaccine(s) in a separate injection site does not generally result in any interaction.
This vaccine can be administered simultaneously, but in two separate sites, with a typhoid polysaccharide vaccine (Typhim Vi) without modification of the immune response to either antigen.
This vaccine can be administered simultaneously, but in two separate sites, with the live yellow fever vaccine.
