What is this vaccine for? I do some shots. Dh and I are trying to come to an agreement on what to do, to get them or not. So I delayed my ds, except for the first few, until he was 12 months. I was looking at his vax sheet, the ones he's already had, and they gave him prevnar. I am almost positive I did not get an info sheet on it at the time because I would have questioned it. When I asked them what it was they said something about ear infections. I think that is one of the most stupid things I have ever heard, right up there with a chicken pox vax. Is it really an ear infection vaccine and if so, then it obviously doesn't work because my ds had one ear infection and a double ear infection in less than 6 months after recieving that vaccine. So, more info, what is this vaccine for????
