Vaccinating infants and toddlers with all 4 doses of Prevnar 13® can help protect them against invasive pneumococcal disease (IPD) caused by the 13 strains in the vaccine.

Doctors at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recommend that infants and toddlers receive all 4 doses of Prevnar 13® by the time they are 15 months old. If your child receives less than 4 doses of Prevnar 13®, his or her immune response may be lower during the time of greatest risk. See the schedule for infants and toddlers below.

Vaccination Schedule for Prevnar 13®: Doctors at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recommend that children receive all 4 doses of Prevnar 13® by the time they are 15 months old.

For children 7 months through 5 years of age who have not received Prevnar® or Prevnar 13®, the following catch-up schedule should be used:

Children 7 to 11 months of age should receive 3 doses. The first 2 doses should be at least 4 weeks apart with the third dose after the one-year birthday, separated by at least 2 months.
Children 12 to 23 months of age should receive 2 doses at least two months apart.
Children 24 months through 5 years of age (prior to the 6th birthday) should receive a single dose.

The immune responses induced by this catch-up schedule may result in lower antibody concentrations for some serotypes, compared to antibody concentrations following 4 doses of Prevnar 13® (given at 2, 4, 6, and 12-15 months).

*May be given as early as 6 weeks of age.
The recommended dosing interval is 4 to 8 weeks.
The fourth dose should be administered at approximately 12-15 months of age and at least 2 months after the third dose
 

 

 

Broader serotype coverage for children 15 months to 5 years of age already vaccinated with 4 doses of Prevnar®.
*May be given as early as 6 weeks of age.
The recommended dosing interval is 4 to 8 weeks.
The fourth dose should be administered at approximately 12-15 months of age and at least 2 months after the third dose.
§Dosing interval at least 2 months after previous dose.

Talk to your child's doctor about the risks and benefits of Prevnar 13®. Only a health care provider can decide if Prevnar 13® is right for your child.

The immune response from this dose might be lower for the 6 additional strains (types 1, 3, 5, 6A, 7F, and 19A) than if your child had received the full 4 doses of Prevnar 13®.

For children and adolescents 6 years through 17 years of age who have not previously received Prevnar 13®, Prevnar 13® is administered as a single dose.
