Q.

MMR vaccine / ' asthma' 

Hello

My son was on inflamide and combivent from 6 months old for 3 months and then for the last 5 months has been on Singlair (FANTASITC STUFF). My husband is asthmatic

After his 9 month measles vaccine he developed very bad bronchitis chest infection. He is 15 months end of next month and I see i need to take him for the MMR. Do you think i should wait a few more months before i take him for his MMR shot?

It would be a good idea to postpone his MMR to around 16 or 17 months.
