    Here in the U.S, after the 6th month appt, the next appt. is only @ 9 months and then 12 months.
    Not sure about how it works there in India!. May be that is just the flu vaccine which might be optional??

    Influenza ia a completely optional vaccine in India and the flu season is long over so there is no real need to give it now.

    Poonam - yes, give it now. Doesnt matter that you missed it but give it now as MMR isnt given until 15 mnths.

    No fever for measles in majority of kids. rarely you can get a mild fever with rash 2-3 days after the vaccine.
