In brief: VACCINES

All important vaccines are given in the first year of life.
What babies need most are vaccines for whooping cough, pneumonia (prevnar), meningitis (hib and prevnar), severe gastroenteritis (rotavirus), polio, measles and chickenpox. Hep a and b vaccines can be given at a later date. The first four vaccines are given as early as 6 weeks of age because babies absolutely have no protection.
