Question: 

Hello my child was born in 2002 currently in grade 12 and I purchased and he received three doses of the Prevnar sp? vaccine when younger. Is this similar to the Men. Quad vaccine that is now offered? I cannot view his records as it states "not school aged" when his info is entered on this site?

Answer: 

If you purchased the Prevnar 13 vaccine, it protects against 13 types of pneumococcal bacteria. The meningococcal quadrivalent vaccine protects against four types of meningococcal bacteria, types A, C, Y and W. You can find more info re pneumococcal vaccine here. Info re meningococcal vaccine is here. You will find tips for locating immunization records here. If you have further questions, we recommend you call your local health unit and ask to speak to a public health nurse. You will find the number here.
