    HIB Vaccine

    I intend to get my son have all the vaccinations at the public health centre. The problem is they do not offer the HIB vaccine as part of their immunisation program. Does anyone have their child vaccinated for HIB separately in private clinic ? ...where and when (at which mth age) can this be done ? I would really appreciate advice for this....many thanks !

    Hi, I have a daughter 2 years old and I would like to do chicken pox vaccination for her. I heard that it's a free of charge at the government clinic? Is it true?
