We probably should get a pop up warning message if there is any
irregularity on the child vaccination schedule, showing in the same
popup which vaccines / doses that are due.

If everything is OK, then no notice will be shown.

A couple of variables to keep in mind when implementing the "DSS"
for vaccinations

- Child age / vaccine / first dose : Based on the WHO vaccination

- Boosters / next doses : Based on the "next dose" field of the
  vaccination model.

With these two, we should be in pretty good shape to start with.
