My son is 3.5 years old, and he did not get his pneumococcal vaccine yet. When I asked about this, his pediatrician said that it is not a compulsory one. Even Rotavirus, I got it for my son with my own wish and was not instructed by his pediatrician. I was in my native for six months after delivery, and I moved to a new place when my son was 7 months old. The new pediatrician here also said that the pneumococcal vaccine is not necessary. Recently, I heard pneumococcal vaccine is a must. What shall I do now? Should I get it now for my son? Can he get it around 3.5 years of age? We are little confused about the missed pneumococcal vaccination. Whenever he is sick, I feel that the missed vaccine is the cause of the sickness. Please advise.
