DTaP- IPV-Hib combination vaccine is freely available with a brand name of Pentaxim manufactured by Sanofi Pasteur.
You can also get Pneumococcal conjugate vaccine Prevnar manufactured by Pfizer.
Meningococcal conjugate vaccine is not available easily in India. Meningococcal A conjugate vaccine is manufactured by Menafrivac in India but do confirm its availabilty in your area. Unconjugated meningococcal vaccine is freely available in India but can be given only in children above 2 year of age.
