Comvax is a vaccine for Haemophilus influenzae type B, a disease caused by bacteria, and for hepatitis B virus. The vaccine is administered to children from 6 weeks to 15 months old whose mothers test negative for HBsAg. HBsAg is an antigen, or marker, of the hepatitis B virus. Children born to mothers who are positive for this antigen should receive a different vaccination. Comvax is normally administered in three separate doses given as an injection at a doctor's office or hospital.
