All doses are the exact same ingredients, in the exact same amount and potentcy... the dose for a 10 lb. 2-month-old is the same as for a 50 lb. 5-year-old.
It is most common for children to react to the fourth and fifth doses because the vaccine is a toxoid vaccine. If children (or anyone, for that matter) have developed enough immunity to the tetanus toxoid, the body's immune system will react to the toxoid in the vaccine. A "common" reaction is having the entire arm or leg where the vaccine was given swell up. This is why adults are not supposed to receive doses of tetanus vaccine too close together -- the immunity they already have to tetanus will react.
So it's like your body is saying - "I didn't need this dose, I am immune"?
