Q.

Downs Syndrom

I have a Downs little boy who is a healthy. When he was a baby, he was ill and missed most of his vaccinations. I also was not in a financial position to pay so much money for the vaccinations. This is very embarresing for me but is there any way I can catch up? Can I just start from the 9 month measels? How do I do this?

You can certainly catch up with your son's vaccinations. Just take him to your nearest baby and child clinic and the sister will help you and your son to catch up. Do not be embarrassed as it is perefctly understandable that you were in a difficult predicament previously.
