Parent FAQ on Pneumonia Catch up vaccination in Indian children

my son is now going to complete his 2nd birthday on 28th august 2014 but still i didn't give pcv vaccine to him. can i give now and how many doses he need?

He needs 1 dose of PCV 13 (Prevenar) OR 2 doses of PCV 10 (Synflorix) at least 2-3 months apart.
I would recommend a single dose of PCV 13 (Prevenar),
