I second this idea, remove from DB any idea that the **project** will protect a doctor from being stupid. If you tell your patient to get 2 doses of the same vaccine the same day or 2 days of 15 days or 30 days a part ... and the recomended time interval is 90days, the PRACTIONER should be the culprit. There should be a place in GNUmed to RECORD the vaccine, but orientations on the individual time frame should be left to provider (or at the maximum the IT team) ...
