Q.

14 week injection out of stock

Dear Docter

My baby is 5 months old, and was due for her 14 week injection in December already
we live in the eastern Cape, and everywhere those injections are out of stock, they are nowhere
to be found in the Eastern Cape. I am worried about my baby. Will it have a effect on her health
if she has it later? As i have no control over the situation.
Thanking you

It is important that your baby have this immunisation done.Do you have any Storks Nest baby clinics in your area? They are usually attached to a Netcare Hospital. They may have the correct vaccine in stock.
