  • Children and Adolescents (aged 12 months through 18 years)

Primary immunization for children and adolescents consists of a single 0.5-mL dose and a 0.5- mL booster dose administered anytime between 6 and 12 months later. The preferred sites for intramuscular injections are the anterolateral aspect of the thigh in young children or the deltoid muscle of the upper arm in older children.

  4. MMR vaccine
  5. Varicella vaccine.

HAVRIX may be administered concomitantly with immune globulin.

Immunosuppressive therapies, including irradiation, antimetabolites, alkylating agents, cytotoxic drugs, and corticosteroids may reduce the immune response to HAVRIX.
