User:Hello Doctor
Doctor:This is Dr. XXXXXXX
Doctor:How can I help you?
User:In the last meeting with Dr XXXXXXX here, she told to give Calpol for my 9 month old son, as he has been suffering from cold and cough. Is it a syrup?
User:Sorry...she was Shanthi
User:Thanks. And one more doubt. He has to undergo a vaccine this month. Can he take vaccine now, as he is not yet recovered from cold and cough?
Doctor:He is due for Measles vaccine right?
User:Yes Madam. Correct. Measles vaccine
Doctor:Does he have fever as well?
User:Yes he had (99.2 F). But it came down.
Doctor:If he does not have fever at the time of vaccination, you can get it done
Doctor:Upto 99 F fever is also fine
Doctor:But if its higher than that, please get it done when he has recovered
User:Yes Madam. But cold and cough doesn't harm for getting the vaccine, right? Anyway, we will wait until he gets recovered from cough and cold too.
Doctor:you dont need to
Doctor:Only when the child has high fever, we postpone the vaccine
User:Oh, Ok! We shall get him the vaccine, then.
Doctor:Is there anything else I can help you with
User:No Madam, Thanks a lot for spending your valuable time with me.
