Vaccination of children with aluminium sensitisation against diphtheria and tetanus presents a problem, since vaccine without aluminium against these potentially serious infectious diseases is no longer available. This case report presents a 7-month-old boy who, after his second immunisation with DTaP-IPV, developed an itching injection site nodule. Before being tested for aluminium sensitisation, he was vaccinated again with DTaP-IPV without developing any reactions. This third vaccine dose was administered intramuscularly.
