My pedi who is usually not vax friendly is recommending these 3 for our almost 10 month old for our Africa trip. I know we're not doing DTAP and will probably only get the tetanus vax. What I'm confused about is the other 2. Is Prevnar (PCV) mainly for strep? I can't figure out if the meningitis, blood infections, pneumonia and esr infections are what PCV is supposed to prevent or if they're possible side effects of contracting strep. Because if that's the case, HIB is specifically for meningitis, pneumonia and epiglottis.
