Any educated people here? Google doesn't seem to be helpful. I don't know where else to turn to.

I gave the 3 in 1. I hope its indeed a better option than the 5 in 1 (dtap plus polio and hep b)

Did you check Dr. Sears book? I'll try to get to it later and see if he provides that information.

There are no toxins in the vaccine. They are toxoids.

DTaP in combination, or alone, contains the same ratio/amount of diptheria and tetanus toxiods as well as FHA, PRN and PT. The TdaP is the one that changes the ratio/amounts.

The only difference is this combination vaccine is given in a single injection rather than in three which mean fewer injections for a child making it less uncomfortable.

Even the 3 in 1s are not created identically. For instance, the Daptacel has 330 micrograms of aluminum while the Infanrix has 625.

Pentacel (DTaP, HiB, and IPV) has higher levels of 2 out of the 4 pertussis components. It also contains polysorbate 80 if that is a concern of yours.
Pediarix (DTaP, Hep B, and IPV) has 850 micrograms of aluminum.

I am not sure what it is you're seeking to find information about, but I hope some of this helps you. This is from Dr. Sears.
