Q.

Re Post 1911: Advise please

Dr please advise urgently - as stated in my previous post (1911)My baby had PCV (Prevenar) at 6 and 14 weeks and is due again at 9 months as per Department of Health Immunisation schedule used at clinics but your reply stated that he should have had it at 6,10, 14 weeks and at 12 months. Do i give him another Prevenar now (baby is 5 mnths) and then continue to follow again at 9 months as per Govt. clinics schedule or must i follow immunisation schedules used by most paediatricians as there is a difference. I want to do the right thing.

Your baby son can have his next Prevenar immunisation now and a final one at 12 months.
