due to transportation issues, is delaying the 2 months immunization by 15 days a risk?


The risk with delaying vaccines is that it leaves children at risk for the diseases vaccines prevent longer and at a time when they are most vulnerable.  It is recommended that children get immunized on time; however, there are a number of reasons why a child may not be able to get immunized on time.  In these circumstances, children should get immunized as close to the recommended time as possible.  

You can visit our Infant Immunizations page for more information.  If you have further questions or would like information on immunization clinics in your area, we recommend that you contact your local public health unit and ask to speak with a public health nurse.  The public health nurse may also have information on transportation options in your community.
