Thank goodness for innovation. Now, a 6-in-1 vaccine is available which spares babies the agony of multiple injections, and parents the little heartache they get each time the little one has to be poked. Diphteria, pertussis, tetanus (DPT), hemophilus influenza B (HiB), polio and hepatitis B all in one. Just one jab and Baby Xin cries for 10 seconds, and then slips back into her morning nap, just as the pediatrician finished putting a little round plaster on her little hip. There's one little catch, though. There are 3 courses of this vaccination, 1 per month. Till next month.
