Hi,
I want to ask about vaccination for 2-3 months child. Is it necessary to give "Synflorix(nemococcus vaccine)"? Can we give Prevanar instead? Please suggest.

Dear XXXXXXX
Thanks for writing to XXXXXXX

One of the largest killer diseases in kids worldwide esp. in India is pneumococcus.

Prevenar would be the best among the two you put forth, though its twice expensive than the other.
Prevention is always better than cure, isn't it?

Hope I cleared your doubts. Do write back if you have follow up queries to ask.
