  • Just reschedule. '
    I do remember what it was like in the 1950's when people of all ages were contracting was horrible. An epidemic in 1952,1953. When they finally created the Polio vaccine, it was a God-send.
    I had a friend who spent the rest of her short life living in an Iron Lung because of polio's paralysis. And a few who used crutches until they died.
    Get your shots for yourself and your babies, Moms!!

  • You reschedule. My daughter missed her 18 month appointment. She got caught up at her 2 year appointment.

  • just reschedule. you can make it up anytime before or on the next scheduled round of shots. I actually did not get the vac's on the traditional timeline, i got them spread out or delayed.

  • You just reschedule it and go some other time. We delay vaccinations. DD hasn't had a shot since her 18 month shots (she's almost 2.5 now) because I wanted to wait on one of the shots until she was older. She'll be going back pretty soon, though.

  • you just reschedule and sometimes if its part of series the are late for the next shot might have to be delayed by however late you are for this one. my oldest were not completely current until they were 4.

  • It is NO BIG DEAL - you just call and reschedule. All of my children were vaccinated on a revised schedule.
