Adacel vaccine is indicated for active booster immunization for the prevention of tetanus, diphtheria, and pertussis as a single dose in persons 11 through 64 years of age.

Safety Information

The most common local and systemic adverse reactions to Adacel vaccine include pain, erythema, and swelling at the injection site; headache, body ache or muscle weakness, and tiredness. Other adverse reactions may occur. A severe allergic reaction after a previous dose of Adacel vaccine or any other tetanus toxoid, diphtheria toxoid, or pertussis-containing vaccine, or to any component; or encephalopathy within 7 days of a previous dose of a pertussis-containing vaccine, is a contraindication.

The decision to give Adacel vaccine should be based on the potential benefits and risks; especially if Guillain-Barré syndrome has occurred within 6 weeks of receipt of a prior vaccine containing tetanus toxoid; if progressive or unstable neurologic disorders exist; or if adverse events have occurred in temporal relation to receipt of pertussis-containing vaccine. Persons who experienced Arthus-type hypersensitivity reactions following a prior dose of tetanus toxoid-containing vaccine should not receive Adacel vaccine less than 10 years since the last dose of tetanus toxoid-containing vaccine. The tip caps of the prefilled syringes may contain natural rubber latex, which may cause allergic reactions in latex-sensitive individuals. Vaccination with Adacel vaccine may not protect all individuals.
