How Twinrix Paediatric Injection works
Twinrix Paediatric Injection is a combination of two medicines: Freeze-dried Live Attenuated Hepatitis A Vaccine and Hepatitis B Vaccine (rDNA) which prevent Hepatitis A and Hepatitis B. They help develop immunity by initiating a mild infection. This type of infection does not cause illness but stimulates the body's immune system to produce antibodies (proteins) to protect against any future infections.
