Ds due to have a measles jab tmw but has a really chesty, 'barky' cough. sounds like his throat is pretty sore and he isn't a happy little soul this afternoon. Ok for jab or should I postpone?

In clinic I always if he has a temperature, if so I wouldn't immunise. He sounds a bit poorly to me, I would postpone.

I would postpone - but it'ud be a good idea to make the new appointment when you ring to cancel (then it won't slip off your 'to do' list).
