Q.

Piercing &  immunisation

Hi Doc,

The local clinic that i take my baby to was out of stock of HepB when my baby was supposed to get her 14 month immunisation &  still is now,my problem is i want to take her to another clinic next week &  want to pierce her during this week.Is it dangerous to do that,or is piercing not the same as injection where a period of four weeks should be given before another one can take place. She is now on her seventh month.

Thanks

Do not even think about any piercing of your child until after she has had her Hepatitis B immunisations.
