Is the booster dose for HIB necessary?
Q: My son is 2 years old now. We gave him three primary doses of HIB at 6, 10 and 14 weeks age but one of our doctors told that the booster given between 15 and 18 months of age is optional. So we skipped it. Please tell me whether HIB booster dose is essential or optional?
A:The booster between 15 and 18 months of age is not optional but is essential.
