Hi Praveen, Are you asking for Japanese encephalitis? Since it can be given anytime between 2 months and 16 yrs, it doesn't matter. But in general if any vaccine is supposed to be given at 9 months, it has to be given after completing 9months. 1 week of lapse should be fine. Btw I am not an expert in this field. So please mention it to your child's physician. Because for some vaccine series, if the 1st dose is given 5 or more days earlier, it has to be repeated after your child reaches the recommended age. So your child's doc will be the best person to advice depending on the vaccine. But for Japanese encephalitis, the number of days between 1st and 2nd dose should be minimum of 28 days.

Anytime between 2 months to 16 yrs. Sometimes even adults get this vaccine. The second dose is exactly after 4 weeks i. e. 28 days. We gave it for our son when he was around 3. talk to your physician about the allergic reactions and whether it's even needed.
