Hello Preethi,
As per guidelines, excessive crying is not an indication for giving acellular pertusis vaccine ie painless vaccine. Also the efficacy of both the vaccine is same. Cost difference between the two in private set up is around 1200 to 1500 Rs. So now its entirely up to parents for taking this decision. Thank you
