Since your child is already 5 months... you should not give rotavirus vaccine. You can yet give pneumococcal vaccine. For the schedule please discuss it with your doc. Normally its 3 doses 1 month apart with a booster dose.
Essentially rotavirus and pneumococcal vaccines are optional at 6weeks,10weeks of age , given to prevent diseases if your child travels abroad. Since your child is 5months old, I'd suggest you consult your doctor regarding the same. Rotavirus vaccine can't given,although. However these days, adults get pneumococcal shots whenever travelling. So it's not an issue to worry about, your child can get it when he/she is elder too. It is not mandatory but good for immunisation and preventing spread of diseases.
My baby has got all vaccinations done at right time. Now the doctor has called us for flu vaccination next month i. e when she completes her 6months but after reading many posts in this forum, i haven't found any mention of flu vaccine. Is it optional vaccination?
What are pros and cons of giving this vaccine?
