Question: Hello doctor,

My son has completed 18 months on 30-Nov-2018. He is due on his 18th month vaccination as below:

DTwP B(1) / DTaP B(1), OPV / IPV, Hib (B), Hepatitis A (2)

However, we could not still get it administered because my son was down with cold and cough with slight fever intermittently. Now, he is alright but we have some travel plans. He will turn 19 months by the end of this month but we cannot be back until then!

Kindly advise if the pending vaccination is an immediate priority and if we have to get it done without any further delay?

Thanks,
