Dear all,

There's combination vaccines vs single-indication vaccines.

There's also mono-valent vs. poly-valent vaccines where I
regard the latter to immunize against several "different"

There's clearly a difference between

        Td vaccine
                tetanus and diphteria = two separate indications in a 
*combination* vaccine


        polyvalent pneumococcus vaccine
                several strains of pneumoccus in a *polyvalent* vaccine

Can English speakers please suggest terms (as smooth as
"monovalent vs polyvalent") for multi-indication and
single-indication ?
