    6 month vaccination

    My son is due to have the usual 6 months vaccination done around 26th June but we are moving the country. I am concious that we 'should' get the vaccine the same brand from the same doctor??
    My PD suggested that it will be fine to have his vaccine done before the 6 months date but I'm not convinced.
    I only heard that people can delay the vaccination by a month but never heard of giving the vaccine earlier than the date.
    Anyone has any experience?

    Btw we are going to Thailand for a month and then Shanghai for a few years.

    Hello, Just to let you know when I was in Shanghai my vaccines were ordered from overseas (UK) Why not get the name of the vaccines you would like your baby to have, and then see if someone like world link can order them for you. (I PM'd the number to you). Have no knowledge of getting them done early sorry, except my Aussie doctor would not do my 18 month olds early.

    How early before six months would your son have to the have the vaccine? If it is just a week early, am sure it is fine, espec. if the Dr says so.

    Even if your son has his 6 month vaccination from the DR here he won't be able to have the rest of his vaccines from the same brand and same Doctor....so if you were worried about him having it too early, you could just have with a new Dr in Shanghai, which is where I assume he will have to have the rest of them anyway.
