The 13-valent vaccine (Prevenar 13) is the vaccine now recommended for not only for children, but for all adults as well. Furthermore, children who have received the older-generation 7-valent Prevenar can receive booster or continuing doses of Prevenar 13. The vaccines are given in 1 to 4 doses depending on the age of recipient and individual vaccine history. Please consult our doctors for details.
