Are shots scheduled by calendar months or weeks since birth?...
Are shots scheduled by calendar months or weeks since birth? My baby was born February 11th and so the 3rd of June will be 16 weeks. Is that the 4 month or is it June 11th?
The immunization schedule can be calculated using either weeks or calendar months. In the routine immunization schedule, a baby is at least eight weeks of age at the 2-month visit, and eight weeks should pass between the 2 and 4-month visits. Contact the health care provider that gave the 2-month vaccines and ask them for the earliest date for the 4-month vaccines. You can book an immunization appointment at your local health unit. Use the health unit finder.
