Q.

How many Prevenar injections?

Hi Doc. How many Prevenar injections are children supposed to get in total? My LB already got 3 injections at 8, 12, 16 weeks and last week the clinic sister said the next one (a booster) would be due at 15 months. Is it really neccessary to have all 4 of these?

Your baby does not need a Prevenar booster at 15 months.He has had the complete course of injections.
