Q.

Injections

Good day
Please tell me what to do, ??? my son is getting his 18 month injections today 30/04/2010 and the dept of health will be visiting his creche next week thursday 06/05/2010 to give them measles injection, H1N1 vitamin and polio drops. My concern however is all these injections are not even a week apart, should i let him have all these injections, should i wait with the 18 months injection, I''m scared that all this injections might have a ill affect on him.

please advise

thanks

I agree with you. the best thing to do now is to postpone your son's 18 month vaccinations for 3 weeks and to have the dept of health vaccinations next week.
