Rotarix administration at 16-17 week old baby

My baby is turning four months on September 4, 2010.  He is scheduled for his 1st dose of rotarix.  Unfortunately, I read that rotarix first dose should be administered between 6 and 14 weeks.  I also read that the first dose of rotavirus vaccines should not be administered later than 15 weeks.

My question now is, should i continue he vaccine on September 4 or should i just skip the vaccine altogether since my son is already more than 15 week old?

thank you.
