Thanks Michael - sounds very similar in outline and detail to what we have in the US. Actually, here I believe they will give a newborn a hepatitis shot first thing, unless the parents firmly decline it. My knowledge of all this is sketchy, but Wendy has been doing lots of homework. Lots of new vaccines, which we never had access to when we were kids. Entirely a good thing? Maybe, maybe not. I used to think drug companies were unstoppable, but after viewing the Prevnar site, with its area for "consumers," I consumed a bit of Glenmorangie and felt immune to their viral marketing.

[later]: Jeneane emailed wondering if they do chicken pox vaccine up there. That's one Wendy and I don't quite see the point of.
