Don't worry.
Ds had constant ear infections so he was either on antibiotics or had a temperature for months on end.
He had his 8 wks at 8 week.
His 12 wk at 16 weeks
They wouldn't do his 16 week in one go because of a history of bad reactions either, so he got his first set at 9 months, and his second set at 13 months.

He then had his 11 month one at 15 months and his MMR at 16 months.

Those were the first times we could manage where he wasn't already ill.

The GP was not worried at all.

We're running about 4 weeks behind schedules on ours - no one's said anything negative about them (DD2 was in the middle of a nasty allergic reaction when the first set were due so we deferred them a bit since I figured I'd cut the poor kid SOME break!)

I don't think it's a problem, she is very likely immune from the first jabs.

My ds has only had 2 sets of jabs ( not in the UK) and I'm not worried.

I think it's fine my DD just had her 16 week ones at 22weeks. The nurse just says they can't be before 8/12/16 weeks but can be later smile

I stupidly left it too late and apparently the surgery can't fit DD in for another 4 weeks!!

She will be exactly 20w when she gets her 16w jabs.

Is this ok?? It sounds wrong to me!

Bit worried but not sure what else I can do!

I got her 8w jabs and 12w ones religiously on time so I feel a bit upset that I have screwed up.
