Q.

Vacinations + antibiotics

I want to know, my child is about 2weeks over due for her 15 month injections. She is on antibiotics + mild cortizone for croup. Can she have her shots now or when?

Your child cannot have the MMR vaccination while on antibiotics and cortisone. The vaccination can be done 10 days after the antibiotic and cortisone are stopped.
