Hello.... There are two kinds of vaccines ,live attenuated vaccine and killed vaccine, usually killed vaccine is used in schedule, its given in two doses. Don't worry it can be given at anytime for children above 1 year. But hep a vaccine don't give life long immunity. Consult pediatrician in nearest hospital. ......

Even if u are late it won't make much of a difference in case of second vaccine. It's ok to be late rather than completely missing the dose in my opinion. You have to start brushing with a soft kiddie brush once your child erupts teeth. You can use any toothpaste meant for kids or the ones your dentist suggests. Be sure to use only a pea sized amount
