Is Prevenar vaccine a must for children?
Q: Is Prevenar vaccine a must for children?
A:This vaccine protects against invasive pneumococcal disease, which can be a significant cause of morbidity (pneumonia and meningitis) and mortality in infants. If you can easily afford this for your young infant, it would be advisable to give it. If you cannot, do not lose much sleep over it. It is hoped that with increased use and over time, this vaccine will become cheaper.
