Parents questions regarding new vaccines:

When is the earliest that you can give a Prevenar 13 booster if you have given the first dose after 1 year age?
Answer: The recommended primary series is three doses given at 2, 4, and 6 months of age with 2 months between doses. A fourth (booster) dose is recommended at 12 to 15 months of age. If the first dose is given after the age of 1 year however, then at gap of at least 60 days should be kept before giving the booster dose.
