will check further, but our (Oz) current practice is to consider all 
vaccinations valid unless completely out of date
i'm considering here advice from our public health group who translated from 
Farsi from us for some Afghan refugees; we just had to make sure that each 
child had their full quota of vaccinations, none were considered void because 
of incompleteness.
Measles had to be repeated, because they had only measles vacc, and we have 
only measles/mumps/rubella vacc to give.

        Men don't discard clothes.  The average man still has the gym shirt
he wore in high school.  He thinks a jacket is "just getting broken in" about
the time it develops holes in the elbows.  A man will let new shirts sit on
the shelf in their original packaging for a couple of years before putting
them to use, hoping they'll become more comfortable with age.
        Women think clothes are radioactive, with a half-life of one year.
They exercise precautions to avoid contamination by last year's fashions.
