Hello. Thanks for writing in. My name is***** and I would be happy to help you. It should be fine to do the booster this early. The 3 year vaccine is no different from the 1 year vaccine. The difference in making it a 3 year vs a 1 year is the timing of the vaccine and the local laws where you live. It shouldn't affect his health or immunity either way to do it early. Please let me know if you have any other questions or concerns. Hope this helps.
