    Default Vax catch up schedule from health services

    I took my 3.5 year old to the GP as he has only had 1/2 of the vaccines on the schedule. The Dr said she won't make up a catch up schedule for him but rather send a request from NSW Heath services to create a catch up schedule for him and that it will only take about 2 days for then to do this.

    has anyone had it done this way before. he is now too old to have the rotavirus and the birth help B so will they just medically exempt him?

    I'm not sure about rotavirus but when I moved to Australia from the uk my ds1 who was just over 1 had a few catch up vaxs including the hep b as it's not done routinely in uk. It involved 3 injections over about 5 months I think. I don't think there's a cut off age where it's not effective whereas with the rotavirus maybe there is? (With the rotavirus I think there is an issue with the risk of intusuception if the vaccine is given too late).
