What REVAXIS is and what it is used for
REVAXIS is a vaccine. Vaccines are used to protect against infectious diseases. This vaccine helps
boost protection against diphtheria, tetanus and poliomyelitis (polio). When an injection of REVAXIS
is given, the body’s natural defences will produce protection against these different diseases.
This booster vaccination is for children from the age of 6 years, teenagers and adults who have
received this vaccine or a similar vaccine in the past. REVAXIS should not be given as the first
vaccination (primary course) against diphtheria, tetanus and poliomyelitis (polio).
