Excerpt
The simultaneous administration of multiple antigens overcomes many of the practical and logistic obstacles to providing complete immunization services to children. A single immunizing session to protect against several diseases reduces the cost and increases the numhw of diseases for which prophylaxis can be obtained during a limited number of visits. This is especially true in developing countries where most of the population live in rural areas inaccessible to fixed health installations and depend on mobile teams for preventive health services. In urban areas in both developed and developing countries where return rates for preventive services are against smallpox and measles (Budd et al. 1967; Sherman et al., 1967; Kalabus et al. 1967; Weibel et al. 1969), snlallpox and yellow fever (Peltier, 1947; Dick & Horgan, 1952), and smallpox, measles, and yellow fever (Meyer et al., 1964) are conclusive that these vaccine combinations can be administered safely and effectively. DPT has not been studied in combination with these live virus vaccines except by Winter et al. (1963), who studied the simultaneous administration of smallpox, oral poliomyelitis, and DPT antigens. Limited serologic data indicated a satisfactory immunologic response to smallpox, poliomyelitis, diphtheria, and tetanus antigens. low, simultaneous administration of several antigens Response to pertussis vaccine was not measured. No has similar advantages. data have been collected on the addition of measles Mulliple vaccine administration is a cornmoll practice in many parts of the world. Serologic studies to support such practices are lim~tede xcept for those dealing with frequently used vaccinc comhinarions: diphtheria-pertnssis-letanus (DPT) Miller & Ryan (1944), DPT and mono- (Benson et al., 1963; Kelemon et al., 1961), and trivalent polionlyelitis (Hardy et al., 1970).
