My ds is due his MMR this week but his 6month vaccination was delayed for almost 2 months- he had a few short lived fevers during that time-should I now delay mmr to keep the same time span between the vaccinations? The two medical professionals I have asked have given different answers and I am sure I'm not the first in this predicament. TIA

No don't delay. MMR is usually given around 12-15 months as that's when maternal antibodies wane.

The gap between baby vaccines and MMR isn't especially important.
