Syringe How to schedule catch-up vaccinations!

Hi all:

Let's say if today i have a 10 months-old baby and his vaccination is not up-to-date. He only received vaccination during his first 3 months. So what should i do? Should i start the vaccination from his third month schedule or i just ignore those missed vaccinations and start from his 11th month

schedule?

Thank you!

You pick it up from where it was stopped.

So you consider him a 3 months old and you go on.

This baby should receive the vaccines indicated at the 4-month visit, including DTaP, Hib, PCV13, and IPV, but not the rotavirus vaccine because it is not given after 8 months.
In addition, at 10 months of age he/she is also due for the third dose of HepB.

Good point. So, the answer should be all the appropriate missed vaccinations..............
