    On page 5 of this PDF you can find out how many doses your child will need and the interval between them.

    My pediatrician has indicated to me that it will go on the schedule very soon and we should wait to get it. He's very pro vax as am I but I decided to wait.

    Yeah I don't know why. Try copying and paste into a browser. That should work

    Thanks for posting, I didnt know about this vaccine. We will definitely try & find the money to get it for our bubby as DH & I think its really important. Very expensive though!! At least we have some time to budget for it.

    Anyone have any links/info about when it will go on the schedule? Trying to decide if we should risk waiting or bite the bullet and sell one of the kids on ebay to fund the vax for the others!

    On the news last night, it was mentioned that they're going to try to get it on the pbs list, I can't recall exactly but I think they said in two weeks.
    I would pay the money, but we simply can't afford that right now.

    My DS is due 18mo immunisations next month. I asked GP about it. She said the manufacturer are applying in July again to have it added to the PBS. I'm not sure if it is approved how long it takes from there? I've asked to get it when he has his others at 18mo.
