My 7 months old is a week late on her second shot for flu, can I skip it or should I take her in anyway?

I would: The recommendation for the interval between the two doses is greater than or equal to 4 weeks apart. This is done in case the first dose did not result in sufficient immunity. Very likely being only a week late will not be a factor. I would take her in anyway. Best wishes:) ...Read more
