Q.

BABY VACCINES

Hi,

I would like some clarity regarding the PCV and RV Vaccines, on a recent visit to a local clinic for the normal 14 week vaccines the nursing sister recommended that we take our baby for these vaccines too. We could either have them administered by our pediatrician or local chemist like DisChem.

Our child is healthy and as they are not part of the vaccination course administered by clinics are they a necessity ?

regards

confused Dad
