HI Doc,
My son is 32 months now is up-to-date with all his immunisations. The polio and measles vacs are being given at school, is it necessary to vacinnate him now, and is it harmless anyway to give again so quickly?
Many thanks!

Your son had his last polio vaccination at 18 months and his last measles together with the MMR at 15 months.It would do him no harm to have a polio and measles booster vacccination now.

I urge you please take your baby for this injection it is a specail campaign because of the measles outbreak.I regret not taking my baby who is 8 months old because he was hospitalised with measles &  pnemonia he was very sick &  I wish no mother or baby would ever go through what we went through it was very traumatic.
