Combination and Conjugate Vaccines

Combination vaccines take two or more vaccines that could be given individually and put them into one shot. Children get the same protection as they do from individual vaccines given separately—but with fewer shots.The use of combination vaccines improves timely vaccination coverage, according to several studies.Conjugate polysaccharide vaccines are those in which the polysaccharide is chemically linked to a protein. This linkage makes the polysaccharide a more potent vaccine. Polysaccharide coatings disguise a bacterium’s antigens so that the immature immune systems of infants and younger children can’t recognize or respond to them. 

Conjugate vaccines, a special type of subunit vaccine, get around this problem. When making a conjugate vaccine, antigens or toxoids from a microbe that an infant’s immune system can recognize to the polysaccharides are linked. The linkage helps the immature immune system react to polysaccharide coatings and defend against the disease-causing bacterium.
