Question: 

Gave birth on 1st March 2019. Induced at 40+4 according to dating scans. I argued that I should have been due on the 3rd as I tracked my ovulation.Is it ok to get her 12 month vaccinations on 2nd March 2020?If the scans were correct she will be 12month+1day. Is it 12 months from actual birthdate?

Answer: 

The 12 month vaccines should be given on or after the 1st birthday. For best protection against disease, it’s advised that children get vaccinated on time and that they follow the recommended schedule as closely as possible. Even babies born prematurely are immunized according to their chronological age. If you have further questions, please contact your immunization provider.
