Q.

Immunizations

Good Evening

My daughter will be six weeks tomorrow and is supposed to go for her 6 week injections, but today she went for her 6 week check up and the paed prescribed orelox junior 3mls and covancaine for an ear infection she has. I completely forgot she needs to have her injections tomorrow. I have only given her one dose of the antibiotic and ear drops, can she now still get her 6 week injections and rotavirus and prevenar injections?

Your little baby cannot have her first immunisations if she has an ear infection. Once she is better these immunisations can be done.
