Q.

15 MONTH VACINATION

Hi there,

I usually take my son to the clinic for his injections but I received an sms from my ped reminding me to take him for his 15 month injection - I went to the gov clinic and they said they do not give 15 month injection only 18 months. I also noticed this vacine is given again at 18 months, SHould I take him privately or wait for the 18 month injection?

Thanking you
Charlene

Your son is due for his MMR at 15 months. I am surprised that your clinic informed you that they do not give this immunisation then.
