I'm pretty sure you can, although I don't have a really recent MIMS to check it on.  I did get the Tetanus Toxoid for my daughter when she was younger, one doctor told me that it wasn't availabe.  He was a bit unhappy when I informed him that it was.  I had to find a doctor who would write the script, and then a chemist who would order it, as they mostly use the infanrix so it can be expensive.  Ali
