Thanks for writing to health care magic.

Yes you can give those vaccines now.

You can also give other optional vaccines like pneumococcal vaccine, injectable polio vaccine, chicken pox vaccine and Hepatitis A vaccine.

They are costly vaccines and should be given after discussion with your doctor.

Hope this helps.

Take care.
