Hello doctor .. My child is currently 9 months old, and until now it turns out he has not received PCV immunization. Next week my child has the MR immunization schedule for the first time. Can the PCV vaccine be given to my child at the same time when the MR immunization schedule? Or should it be paused for 2 weeks a week? If the PCV is only now (9 months), then what time will the PCV be given again, doctor? Thank you doctor for the answer …

Hello Kiyaaa, Thank you for the question.


Pneumococcal conjugate vaccine (PCV) is a vaccine given to prevent infections caused by pneumococus bacteria, namely meningitis and pneumonia. This vaccine is given as a basic immunization of 4 doses, namely at the age of 2 months, 4 months, 6 months and further immunizations. a booster of 1 dose between the ages of 12-15 months. If this vaccine is only given to infants aged 7-12 months, then the vaccine to be given is as much as 2 doses of basic immunization with a time span between immunizations is 2 months followed by continued immunization once when the child is older than 12 months or at least 2 months since the last dose was given. This vaccine can be given at the same time as the measles and rubella (MR) vaccine.


Please consult with your child's specialist if you still need more information. Make sure you always record which immunizations have been received and will be received by your child so that your child gets the right immunizations according to his age.


Hopefully this information is useful.
