It will still be: effective. It needs to be at least 6 months after the first, but definitely can be later. The manufacturer has stated that, although there is a recommended schedule that we try to adhere to, if it is delayed, it is still effective and the series does not need to be restarted. Enjoy your baby!

Get third dose now: If you take the third dose now, the vaccine will still be effective. I applaud you for taking the vaccine. For good health - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, low fat milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually. Do not use tobacco, alcohol, weed or street drugs in any form.
