I have a 5 month old son.  He has had one DTaP at 4 months.  We are moving to Qatar in 6 weeks.  What should I do?  My orginal plan was alternating between Dtap and IPV every other month till he got 3 of each.  Now I am wondering.

Why would you alter your original plan? Is there something in particular you are concerned about?

 

As far as the WHO website there are no disease outbreaks there. Look at this

I assume you will be living in a place that is clean and you will not be subject to overcrowding in your personal dwelling.
