Q.

MMR Vac

Good morning Doc

My LB will be having his MMR Vac on Friday (he is 15 months). Last week he had a cold which is much better now and was also on an antibiotic for a slight ear infection. He just has a slight runny nose now. Will it be ok to have this vac done now.

Many thanks
Gill

He cannot have this immunisation until his cold has completely cleared up. Give him another week to recover.
