Answer C

An immediate anaphylactic reaction, an encephalopathy ,or any CNS complication within 7 days of administration of the vaccine is a contraindiaction for further administration of the vaccine of DTaP.In these instances, DT should be substituted for DTaP since the adverse reactions are usually attributed to the pertussis component of the vaccine

Extremely High Yield !
