Missed Vaccinations

My 6 month old has not been vaccinated for Rotavirus. The people at the health department said that because she missed her 2 month and 4 month vaccinations for RV that she can not now receive the vaccine. I want my baby to be immunized. I was wondering if anyone would know why they told me that she can not receive this vaccine.

this is the information from the CDC. The latest the child should get the 1st vaccine for rotavirus is 14w6d and so the timing is off.
