My baby is six months old, she has only received four four injections from the government clinics, one at six weeks, and one at ten weeks, and one at fourteen weeks, do you think i should take her for another injection, cause i am so worried because she has only received three injections and on reply you said she must get four injections.

Teh Prevenar injection helps with the prevention of all Pneumococcal infections. I gave it to my daughter from 6 weeks (she needed 4 of these innoculations) and to my son before he turned 9.
