In severe cases, it causes pneumonia, meningitis, and otitis media.
In the United States, invasive pneumococcal infections in children under 5 years of age decreased by 99%.
Children under the age of 5 can be vaccinated as routine vaccinations.
Please note that if the first vaccination is given after 7 months of age, the rules regarding the number of vaccinations completed and the vaccination interval will change. Even for those who have not completed vaccination by the age of 2, the rules are complicated, such as the number of times they can be vaccinated for routine vaccination.
If there are no special reasons, it is recommended to start vaccination at 2 months of age with rotavirus, Hib, and hepatitis B vaccines.
From the age of 3 months, let's receive the 4-type mixed vaccine at the same time!
