As advised by Babychakra Expert - Sonali Shivlani ( Prenatal & Lactation Consultant)
The pneumococcal vaccine offers protection against 13 strains and hence if it is being recommended by the doctor please take the same. Your child would have had one strain and can contract the other 12 anytime in the future.
