How many total doses of Hib vaccine are needed for a 12-month old who received one previous dose?

0

Children who are not up to date with Hib vaccine present a challenge. They usually don’t need a full series of 3 or 4 doses of vaccine (depending on the brand used). A 12-month old who received only one previous dose would need one dose of any conjugate Hib vaccine now, and a second dose 2 months later. AAP’s 2000 Red Book contains an excellent Hib vaccination table for children who have fallen behind (p. 271).
