CHLA specialists recommend children on the cusp of turning 12 receive the 11 year old dose (10 µg) now. If they turn 12 between the first and second dose, they should receive the age appropriate 30 µg dose. However, if they accidentally receive the lower dose, they do not need to recieve another dose; they would be considered fully vaccinated.
