In brief: Catch Up

Do not delay . The longer you wait , the more risk there is of exposure and serious disease.

In brief: Get them soon

The good news is you don't have to start over. But it is very important to get caught up as soon as possible.
Give your child's pediatrician a call.

In brief: Talk w/ pediatrician

Usually there are vaccine catch up strategies for children who get behind on one or more of their vaccinations.
If you get behind on vaccinations, make an appointment to see your pediatrician to get back on schedule as quickly as possible. Minor delays are usually not much of a problem.

In brief: Get it soon

If missed a vaccine, don't worry too much about it, but reschedule app't with doctor to get caught up so the child doesn't fall too far behind.
