DECAVAC®
(tetanus and diphtheria toxoids adsorbed)
DRUG DESCRIPTION



What are the possible side effects of this vaccine (Decavac, Tetanus-Diphtheria Toxoids, Adult)?

You should not receive a booster vaccine if you have had a life-threatening allergic reaction after the first shot.
Keep track of any and all side effects you have after receiving this vaccine. When you receive a booster dose, you will need to tell the doctor if the previous shots caused any side effects.

DECAVAC®, Tetanus and Diphtheria Toxoids Adsorbed (Td),
manufactured by Sanofi Pasteur Inc. for intramuscular injection, is a sterile suspension
of alum (aluminum potassium sulfate)-precipitated toxoids in an isotonic sodium chloride solution. The vaccine, after shaking, is a turbid liquid, whitish-gray
in color.
Corynebacterium diphtheriae cultures are grown in a
modified Mueller and Miller medium.1 Clostridium tetani cultures are
grown in a peptone-based medium containing an extract of bovine muscle tissue.
The bovine muscle tissue used in this medium is US sourced. Tetanus and
diphtheria toxins produced during the growth of the cultures are detoxified
with formaldehyde. The detoxified materials are then separately purified by
serial ammonium sulfate fractionation and diafiltration, and adsorbed onto
alum.
Each 0.5 mL dose of DECAVAC vaccine is formulated to contain
the following active ingredients: 5 Lf of tetanus toxoid and 2 Lf of diphtheria
toxoid. The tetanus and diphtheria toxoids induce at least 2 units and 0.5
units of antitoxin per mL of serum, respectively, in the guinea pig potency
test. Each 0.5 mL dose also contains a trace amount of thimerosal [mercury
derivative, ( ≤ 0.3 μg mercury/dose) not as a preservative] from the
manufacturing process, aluminum adjuvant (not more than 0.28 mg aluminum by
assay), and not more than 100 μg (0.02%) of residual formaldehyde.
