How old is your grandson?

He is a newborn
Expert:  Dr. Su S. replied 26 days ago.

Thank you for all the input.
I think you are talking about DPT.
This is in relation to pertussis or whooping cough vaccination.
I am sorry, if you are not vaccinated with DPT then it is recommended that you should not be caregiver for the infant.
This is not related to circumcision.
You can have a vaccination with Tdap.
This will give protective immunity.
Then you can take care of the baby.
I hope this information will be helpful.

You did not understand my question. Of course I know that a dpt shot and the bris are not related. How stupid do u think I am? You did not get back to me when I explained my question for a second time. I asked if I attending the bris without having the dpt shot would endanger the baby. I said nothing about being the baby's care giver. How can I give you a good review when you insult my intelligence and do not get back to me after my explanation? To then request a phone call for fifty dollars is out if order at this point.
Expert:  Dr. Su S. replied 24 days ago.

I am sorry.

I had no intention to insult you or your intelligence.

I just wanted to write in details with explanation.

That might have caused the confusion.

You can attend bris.

Again, I am not able to accept phone call.
