We do vaccinate our kids, but have been splitting up the shots for our last child, and plan to do the same for our newest baby.

Do you mean men C? Where are you located? That has not been approved here in the states for children under 2 and even over two it is for high risk groups only until age 11-12. In Ontario, which is where I used to live, it was only available after age 1 and you could opt to do it

Looks like it is the Men-C vaccine.

I've done some more research and every province except BC and Alberta do the Men-C shot at 12mths (BC does 2 & 12 months).

Do you know the brand name of the vaccine?


Here is the pinkbook chapter on meningococcal: http://www.cdc.gov/vaccines/pubs/pinkbook/downloads/mening.pdf


Here is the page on meningooccal from insidevaccines, it refers to the vaccines available in the US (and other provinces in Canada)
