6 months vaccination a week early

Hello,

Anyone had experience of getting their child vaccinated a week early than the 6 month mark? We are traveling and wanted to get it done earlier than several weeks later.

Thanks.

You should be able to find the manufacturer's monograph for a particular vaccine you are looking for. They will cite the standard schedule for a vaccine (i.e. the one used in clinical trials), but also add wording such as "the vaccine should be administered no earlier than X weeks/months."

If you're not sure, then of course feel free to contact your doctor or pharmacist regarding the product and its schedule.

Sorry, I should add--what province are you in? And will you be traveling outside Canada/US? I might be able to look up the province's vaccination schedule so you can have an idea before asking/confirming with your doctor or pediatrician.
