Doctors at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recommend that all children 2 months to 5 years of age receive Prevnar 13®.

CDC and AAP Recommendations

To help prevent invasive pneumococcal disease (IPD) in infants and young children, the CDC Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices (ACIP) and the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) recommend 4 doses of Prevnar 13® and a supplemental dose in children 15 months to 5 years of age who have received 4 doses of Prevnar® (Pneumococcal 7-valent Conjugate Vaccine [Diphtheria CRM197 Protein)].

The immune response from this dose might be lower for the 6 additional strains (types 1, 3, 5, 6A, 7F, and 19A) than if your child had received the full 4 doses of Prevnar 13®.
