hi, my baby will be 12 months old tomorrow, and will be due for his vaccination MMR dose 2 at KK. In the current covid 19 outbreak situation, plus the Movement Restriction Order in place, is it ok for us to delay his MMR dose 2 vaccination to a later date ? (ie: few weeks after this, or when he is 13 months old). As we afraid that bring him to clinic at current situation might expose him to the bigger risk of Covid 19.
(Note: He followed 100% all the vaccination since born till now, include the MMR dose 1 at age 9 months. And currently healthy and normal in all aspects through out all the KK follow up).

Your advise pls, thanks.
