Question: 

my daughters is currently in China for vacation and she’s getting her 4 months (imported) ones. But China doesn’t mix the HB with the DTaP shot, can we get the HB once we back when she’s 7 months. Does this interrupt the cycle? We were planning to get her 6 months vaccine at 7 months.

Answer: 

It is important that you keep a record of any immunizations your child receives while away. This record should include date, site where it is given, vaccine name, and lot number. When you return to BC your vaccine provider can provide a plan for updating your daughter for Hep B and any other vaccine she is eligible for.
