In brief: Possibly

Studies show about 85% get lifelong protection with a single dose and &> 95% with two doses.
We usually give a dose at 1 yr and another at 5.The initial dose has been shown to eliminate the serious complications occasionally seen with cpx, but may permit a milder case in some kids.
