hi mummies, i like to check, for MMR jab, how many jabs ve to take?
any mummy brought yr child for Pneumococcal vaccine? how old can take for this jab & how many times?
sorry can i check pneumococcal can deduct medi
if keith takes it at 1yo, will need 2 jabs. if take after 2yo, 1 jab will do. my pediatrician suggested ash to take at 3mth old and complete the 4 jab instead of 3 (nowadays govt rule is 3 jab instead of 4 if take below 1yo) cos he said the chance of getting pneu disease is higher for kids below 2yo.
i think you should discuss with keith's pediatrician for the vaccines schedule. and also if you instead to let him take chk pox vaccine. you can let him take MMRV (MMR + chk pox vaccine). i intend to let ash take MMRV instead of taking seperately. but still, best to discuss with his pediatrician =)
