The ACIP (Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices) has published recommendation for use of Tetanus and Diphtheria Toxoids Adsorbed, for adult use in pregnant women. Td vaccine may be used as a primary immunization for persons contraindicated for DTP Vaccine, from 7 years of age. According to ACIP (Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices), they should receive two doses of 0.5 ml of adsorbed Td with reduced dose of diphtheria for adults at an interval of at least four-eight weeks. A third dose recommended at least 6 months after the second dose.
Vial: According to WHO insert model, "Td vaccine may be used as a primary immunization for persons from 7 years of age.
