Due to moving countries and not yet having a doctor organised, my 6MO has not yer had her 6month vaccinations. She'll be 7 months in a week. I was advised by her last doctor that not having them on an absolute schedule is not a problem and i am now trying desperately to sort them out and wondered if anyone knows if there is a time limit for receiving these? Many thanks.

no problem - there is only a lower limit for the spacing of most vaccines, no upper limit (apart from rotavirus vaccine). So I hope you can get them soon, but there is no danger (apart from delayed immunity) from delaying a round of shots.

Similar situation with the 1 year shots for mine - I found that once I'd got him registered they got an appointment almost immediately - before he had an NHS number even.

Not sure where you are Nello but the rotavirus vaccine isn't part of the schedule in the UK.
