A 49-year-old member asked:
What happens if a child got 2 prevnar (pneumococcal vaccine) vaccines between the age of 2-11 months old but then didn't follow up with the third?

Incomplete series: There is likelyhood that the degree of protection afforded by the vaccine will fade sooner. The 3rd could be completed even when delayed over a year.
