Q.

Prevenar

Hello

My son had prevenar injection at 6 weeks and was supposed to have it again from about 7 months. He is now 1 year old, can he still have the follow up vaccines? When will this vaccine be made available from the Government?

Yes he can still have the Prevenar.I believe that the health service will be providing this vaccine soon but cannot tell you exactly when this will happen.
