In brief: Be patient-avoid rsk
That 1st dose at 2 months has giving your baby a good start.
Testing over many years show 2 mo between doses as safe & effective in reducing outbreaks & building immunity.6 wks between doses is the minimum & used mostly for catch up.U can reduce risk by shopping at off hours if baby goes with you, avoid crowds&those who won't vaccinate their kids.Also have adults in babies life get booster.
