Re: Pneumococcal Conjugate Vaccine & BCG
Another vaccine question: I cannot find any information on whether PCV is already on the country's universal immunisation schedule! Our paed says it is our choice, but the hospital is pushing it on us. Very strangely, pharmacists are calling the shots here.
DS does not attend day care, lives in a fairly clean environment, has been free of ear infections. (I am told meningitis is a possiblity only in overcrowded and poorly maintained places where there are other cattle/animals cohabiting. I kinda remember from the last meningitis outbreak that most of those affected where from low income areas. Not sure!)
V, I have your perspective and do respect that. I am curious about other moms. Do you think vaccinating beyond the universal immunisation schedule is necessary...
P.S. Poornima, sorry for the threadjack. We need to decide by Monday on what we are vaccinating DS and stand our grounds :-p
When a child fails to behave appropriately, is not a reflection of a parentís lack of commitment or skill. It is not an indication that the child is lacking in any way. It is simply a facet of humanness. - Elizabeth Pantley in No-cry Discipline Solution book
