This vaccine is indicated for adults over 18 years of age in the following cases:
Routine booster vaccinations against diphtheria and tetanus. The diphtheria toxoid content is redused to one tenth of the normal dose to minimize the risks of a severe hypersensitivity reaction.
Post-exposure prophylaxis following a tetanus-prone wound, if a booster diphtheria injection is required. This adsorbed diphtheria and tetanus vaccine may be administered as a boster vaccination in children over 10 years of age in whom poliomyelitis is prevented by separate administration of poliomyelitis vaccine.
