What happens if I miss one day? I am totally confused Please help

Hello and thanks for posting.

I wouldn't sweat the details. Just continue on your usual schedule when you arrive in Santiago- it might mean that your two doses are a little closer (or further apart) than usual, but for a single day or dose, it won't cause any significant problems.
