Questions from August 2009

Roberta Asks:

How precisely do you have to comply with the timing of the 2nd and 3rd shots?  Does it matter if I get the second shot a week or two before the recommended time?  Would it hurt to wait two or three months to get a follow up shot if I can’t get to the doctor at the exact time?

You should try to do your best to get the shot on time.  However, if you do not get it on time, there does not appear to be a reduced response (non-inferiority) in those who get the 2nd and 3rd doses delayed.
