Effect of needle size on immunogenicity and reactogenicity of vaccines in infants: randomised controlled trial.

Abstract:

OBJECTIVES: To assess the immunogenicity of vaccines for infants and to investigate whether the incidence of reactogenicity is reduced after each immunisation dose using needles of varying lengths and gauges. DESIGN: Randomised controlled trial. SETTING: 18 general practices within two UK primary care trusts. PARTICIPANTS: 696 healthy infants vaccinated at 2, 3, and 4 months of age, with follow-up to 5 months of age. INTERVENTIONS: Combined diphtheria, tetanus, whole cell pertussis, and Haem...
