MENINGITIS INJECTION
My daughter just turned 2. The clinic told me she can come when she is 2 years old for her "Meningitis and Infection" injection. Do you also recommend that they have this injection ? It is very expensive but I dont mind anything to protect her from these illnesses.

At 2 years your daughter should be immunised against Hepatitis A. I am not sure what the clinic has advised in addition to this. If it is the Pneumococcal vaccine then this is highly recommended.
