Shake well to obtain a slightly opaque, white suspension before withdrawal and use. Thoroughly agitate to maintain suspension of the vaccine. Discard if the suspension does not appear homogenous or if extraneous particulate matter remains or discoloration is observed.

For adults, adolescents, and children older than 2 years of age, the deltoid muscle is the preferred site for intramuscular injection. For children 12 through 23 months of age, the anterolateral area of the thigh is the preferred site for intramuscular injection.

Subjects were given one or two doses of the vaccine. The second booster dose was given 6 months or more after the first dose. Children — 12 through 23 Months of Age In two open-label clinical trials involving healthy children 12 through 23 months of age who received one or two 25U doses of Vaqta, subjects were monitored for local adverse reactions and fever for 5 days and systemic adverse events for 14 days after each vaccination by diary cards.

In one trial, 89 children were enrolled and received Vaqta alone. The race distribution of the study subjects who received at least one dose of Vaqta in these studies was as follows: The distribution of subjects by gender was
