DTaP questions

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Hello Dr. Bob,

My daughter was unvaxed until recently due to autoimmune issues in our family. Couple of months ago she had a puncture wound in her leg with a rusty metal object. The drs at ER insisted she gets her first DTaP and TIG immunoglobulines. We agreed and then followed with a second DTaP 2 months later.
1) Are you familiar with any long term effects of TIG (human plasma)? The product insert mentions Hep C, JCD.
2) She did not have a reaction to the vax in the 10 days following the shot. Are you familiar with delayed side effects of DTaP that can manifest later?
3) If we only care about Tetanus protection and stop vaxing after the second shot, how much protection does she have?

Thank you very much for your time!
