PCV/Pneumococcal vaccination after only 17 days
Dear Sir/Madam,
My baby 6 months old on 16th of May. She got PCV 1(Pneumococcal) on 30th of April from a private hospital, her PCV2 is scheduled on 30th May, but today my wife went to see her a doctor. The doctor gave PCV 2 to her. The gap is only 17 days. Is it OK for baby? I have seen in internet that minimum gap should be 4 weeks. Please let me know if it is OK. Or let me know the procedure to file a case against the doctor.

best regards

RE: PCV vaccination
I've also got my daughter PCV 1(Pneumococcal) doses for safety.

It seems maximum of 4 doses are to be given:

At 2 months
At 4 months
At 6 months
Between 12 and 15 months

Giving 17 days after last dose could be dangerous as they could weaken the body and also as these vaccines in India contain dangerous amalgams( of Mercury etc).

Try to administer Vitamin-C before and after vaccines, I've read.

Try to give this vaccine from different doctors, who knows which is original. Always go for reputed doctor at least for this costly vaccine because chance of spurious vaccine is less with them.

It is not the amount that matters. It is more of my self-respect as an educated consumer!Shy
