Brief Answer: relax. Detailed Answer: Hi. Thanks for your query. I understand your concern. Regarding vaccines DTaP is having acellular component of pertusis which decreases reactogenecity so bany has no pain and minimal fever if any. DTwP is whole celled component and it is associated wirh pain and fever. But regarding efficacy both are equally efficient. Since there is price difference so it is left up to parents which ever they prefer. Hope this helps. Let me know if I can help further. God bless....

Brief Answer: no Detailed Answer: Hi. Thanks for your follow up. There us no side effect of painless vaccine at all. This controversy starts regarding increased number of pertusis cases in some countries but no study has proven exact cause. As I mentioned earlier efficacy is equal in both vaccines. No pain is definetly advantage with acellular one. But again it depends upon preference of parents. Hope this helps. Take care...
