Not sure about getting Prevnar 13???

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Hi Dr. Sears,
We got the all the recommended PC vaccines in your Alternative Schedule for my now 4 year old daughter when she was a baby. Now we have one year old twins and so far all they'be had are one round of rotavirus and two rounds of Dtap. One round at 2 months and one now at age one. I was planning on getting them HIB and PC, but I chickened out after reading so many scary stories and about all the controversy with it. My twins are not in daycare, but their big sister is in preschool. I'm confused about if we should get it, any insight? Thanks!!

I really don't have any more info to add other than what's in the Pc chapter of the book.  This is a decision only you can make.

I understand, but is the prevnar 7 ingredients similar to the prevnar 13?

yes, other than the added strains, the ingredients of the two are identical
