DTP vaccine (or DtaP, diphtheria, tetanus, pertussis)-DTP (or DtaP) injections are given as a series of five injections and usually at ages two months, four months, six months, 15-18 months, and four to six years of age.
If a patient with a history of fevers and febrile convulsions is to be given DTP, the patient should receive acetaminophen at the time of the injection and for the following 24 hours.
Although there have been warnings about severe, even fatal reactions to DTP vaccine, these reactions were seen in about one in 140,000 cases with whole cell DTP.
Also, immunosuppressant drugs, including steroids and cancer drugs, may reduce the ability of the body to produce antibodies in response to DTP vaccine.
Several vaccines are delivered in one injection, such as the measles-mumps-rubella (MMR) and diphtheria-tetanus-pertussis (DTP) combinations.
Diphtheria-tetanus-pertussis (DTP) vaccine-The standard vaccine used to immunize children against diphtheria, tetanus, and whooping cough.
Children who have an allergic reaction after the first shot should be referred to an allergist before continuing with the DTP injections.
Some vaccines are mixed in one solution, such as measles-mumps-rubella (MMR) and diphtheria-tetanus-pertussis (DTP) combination.
Because DTP vaccine is injected deep into the muscle, it should be given with care to patients receiving anticoagulant therapy.
L ' so that over the surface of an ellipsoid where X and ¢ are constant, the normal velocity is the same as that of the ellipsoid itself, moving as a solid with velocity parallel to Ox U = -q, - 2 (a2+X) dtP, and so the boundary condition is satisfied; moreover, any ellipsoidal surface X may be supposed moving as if rigid with the velocity in (I I), without disturbing the liquid motion for the moment.
