Pneumococcal vaccine for baby 5 months

Postby nhoc216 » Wed Apr 23, 2014 4:38 am

Hi there,
I live in France now but I will move to Singapore end of this July. I have a baby 5 months old and he had been vaccinated in 2-month-old the 6in1 and Pneumococcal. He should be injected second time and according to our son's pediatrician, the vaccine should be exactly the same as the first shot. I attached here the images of 6in1 and Pneumococcal shots. Are they the same thing in Singapore because surely, he will be vaccinated in Singapore for the second time in July.
Please help me check this. Thanks alot!

Hi. Maybe nobody knows in this forum so nobody replied you.

I suggest you ask hospital directly. Here is the link to Mt Elizabeth Hospital's International Patient site. You can enquire there.

you can also check from our Health Science Authority www.hsa.gov.sg to find out which are the approved vaccines for pneumococcal in Singapore.
