Hello..  routine vaccination till 9 months of age is not being deferred.. so we are taking precautions for sanitization and time difference between patient visits. But there is always a risk to contract in these present times.. coming by appointment and communication with the concerned pediatrician is a good way to  allay any doubts.
Next Steps
Take precautions and maintain hygeine..
