Would this be x-linked agammaglobulinemia? With a BTK gene mutaiton?
Nobody has mentioned this but I think another thing that helps with this answer is that the boy was infected with all these that he was immunized for. A 12 month old should've had immunizations for H. flu, and Strep pneumo, yet he was still getting sick. This makes me think he isnt making proper antibodies --> therefore a B cell issue

Male (XY) + Encapsulated organisms = X linked (Bruton) agammaglobulinemia
Remember: S pneumoniae is a gram positive lancet-shaped diplococcus and is the #1 cause of MOPS (meningitis, otitis media, pneumonia, sinusitis)
N meningitidis is a gram negative diploccocus
