ABSTRACT
This time in Great Britain, where the government has announced plans to introduce from September a new five-in-one jab for infants that will protect against diphtheria, tetanus, whooping cough, polio and a bacterial meningitis. The new vaccine is safer because the polio component is inactivated instead of live and the whooping-cough component no longer consists of whole cells, which can cause redness and swelling. Multiple vaccines may also be safer for another reason, says expert Paul Offit of the Children's Hospital of Philadelphia in Pennsylvania.
