If my baby/infant is ill, should I postpone their vaccination?
It is best to contact your GP or healthcare provider if your baby or infant is ill. They will determine whether it is appropriate for your child to be vaccinated. If your child has a fever of 38.5C or above, it is usually recommended to wait until their fever has cleared before getting vaccinated.
