India Parent Vaccination FAQ - Missed pneumonia & chicken pox immunization

Q: My daughter age is 4.3 year . My question in vaccine she don't received Pneumococcal and chicken pox vaccine. Now we want this vaccine for our daughter . Is this possible ?

A: She can certainly take the Chicken Pox vaccine. I am not so sure about the need for Pneumococcal vaccines since it primarily works for Pneumonia & ear infections up to the age of 5 years. While there absolutely NO HARM in using the Pneumonia vaccine, it may be of minimal benefit.
