Q:

Is it mandatory to give pneumococcal conjugate and rotavirus vaccines after 6 weeks? kindly suggest.



Sonali Shivlani

The vaccines have been prescribed by the Indian Academy of Pediatrics based on the need of the Indian environment for babies of respective ages. It is part of the compulsory schedule. Some parents do choose to not vaccinate at all and this is a decision that you have to make along with your partner and after discussing with your doctor.
