Case Study Progress:
Mrs. H., through a translator asks you what could have caused her baby to be sick, given that
he had an immunization when he was born.
She asks whether he should get “more shots” so
this won’t happen again.
You reinforce to Mrs. H. that infants have immature immune systems,
and they are vulnerable to infections until they have been fully immunized.
Mrs. H. asks when
J.H. will get more shots and what will they be?
