Is my baby allowed to . . .

Have his injections tomorrow, because the doctor has put him on antibiotics for an infection? I'm not sure, anyone know?

  • To be safe I would call the doctor's office and ask them if it is ok, or if it would be best to reschedule the appointment.

  • I would wait.

  • As long as there is no fever.

  • I would wait until at least a week after the completion of the antibiotics to allow his immune system to normalize.

  • I would wait. Babies are not supposed to get vaccinations when they're sick.

  • He wasn't allowed his injections, so I have to take him next week instead.
