Your baby needs all 4 doses of PREVNAR 20® on time to help get the most protection against invasive pneumococcal disease (IPD)
After the 4th dose, your baby’s immunity will be higher than it is after the 3rd dose. If your baby gets less than 4 doses, they may be at greater risk of developing IPD than if they had been fully vaccinated.
All 4 doses of PREVNAR 20 work with the body’s natural defenses to help your baby develop immunity to 20 strains of bacteria that cause IPD.
*May be given as early as 6 weeks of age.
†The 4th dose should be given when your child is 12-15 months of age and at least 2 months after the 3rd dose.

Even when your baby’s health seems to be fine, regular checkups during the first 2 years can help make sure your baby gets the recommended preventive care.
Vaccines that your baby gets at their checkups can keep them safe by helping to prevent diseases. Babies who haven’t gotten all their vaccinations are at higher risk of getting a disease that, in serious cases, could lead to a hospital stay.
Check your baby's vaccination record/card to see if they've gotten all 4 doses. If your baby's shots are not up to date, or you’re not sure, talk to your baby’s doctor right away.
