What the Expert Says:

Generally, yes.  It is up to the physician who is treating the child to make that decision.  The antibiotics used most commonly in pediatrics do not conflict with immunizations.  However, there are always exceptions such as immune compromised children or children with fevers. Check with your pediatrician.
