Q.

Skipped vaccines

My little boy will be 20 months old on the 13 of August. I skipped the 9 month and 15 month vaccination as he was sick with upper respitory disease both times for two weeks each time. I've made an appointment with the sister next week to have the vaccinations done. My question is which vaccinations will he get now? Will he skip them or can they still be given? Thanks for your time!

He has missed the measles vaccine at 9 months and the MMR at 15 months. Both vaccines can still be given.
