Re: missed vaccinations
Ira, Prevnar is optional and is most effective only for children below the age of 2.
OPV vs IPV OPV vs IPV This is something I read when our paed changed our son's polio vaccine from OPV to IPV. Your and your paed's call, basically.
I am not sure about HiB boosters. Are you not done with 4 shots before the child turns 18 months (we had ours till almost the second year)? The booster between 18 months and 5 years seems to be a CDC recommendation meant specifically for the US. After being done with all his vaccs, our paed asked us to come back for vaccs only when he turns 5! Is the new booster dose an IAP recommendation too? TIA.
When a child fails to behave appropriately, is not a reflection of a parent’s 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
