Q.

Measles Vaccination

HI Dr 
My baby is almost 10 months , he will be 10 months in 2 weeks. I haven' t taken him for the 9 montsh vaccine yet coz he was ill. He was in hospital for almost a week with rotavirus then he had flu afterwards. He looks better now but i only plan to take him for the vaccine on mnday next week ( cannot take time off work this week). Will this be too late or is it okay? If it will be late i will make another plan to get him to the clinic.
Thanks in advance for your respionse.

I assume that your baby should have had his 9 month immunisation for measles which has not been done. It is quite alright to take him for this immunisation next week.
