Q.

12 Month Check Up

Hello,

I would like to know what vaccines should a baby get at her 12 month check up visit? If any, are they offered at the municipal clinics or must i go to a private clinic?

thanks

Your baby should have a repeat Prevenar13 at age 12 months. This is done at state clinics. She would also benefit from having the hepatitis A vacination and chicken pox vaccination which is not given by the state clinics.
