FYI this vaccination is not mandatory (yet) by Health Ministry, due to funding issues..
How did I get to know this jab ?
Lately, my kids had fever and cough for over a month. It became worse when my son's fever did not subside. After sought advice, we went to see Dr Vernon at Gleneagles Intan Medical Centre (GIMC). He is one kind of peadtrician - very chirpy and funny.
We learned that Prevenar Vaccination is a must to protect kids from bad flu and chesty problems. Apparently, it can affect the hearing, throat and brain !
The jab is quite expensive (times 2 .... 2 kids lar...). The sister is fine and now we are monitoring the younger one.
Hopefully no more fever or interrupted sleepless nights for me!
