When and how is Hib vaccine given?

Hib vaccine 0.5 ml is given by intramuscular injection into the outer part of the left thigh in 3 doses 4 weeks apart. It is most convenient to give it together with polio and DPT vaccines at 6, 10 and 14 weeks. In South Africa it is combined with DPT and given as a single injection.
