Babies injections

Hi i have a question regarding babies injections. Here in the UK they have injections at 8,12 and 16 weeks. I was wondering if there was any way that these injections can be bought forward at all, as my baby is half vietnamese and we want to go and see the family as soon as possible after the birth.

Thanks for your reply

It is important to stick to the normal immunisation programme. In any case it is not advisable to travel with your baby before your baby is at least 3 to 4 months old.
