Q.

Vaccine

My 8 year old son was due for the vaccine in Feb 2011 and I only found out yesterday, because his clininc card was kept at the creche that he attended before going to school, and they misplaced the card. Can I still take him to the clininc for vaccination or is he too old? Please advice.

It depends on the type of vaccination that he missed, but usually there will be no problem in giving it to him now. Take his clinic card along with you to your nearest clinic.
