Missed vaccinations!

Hi hope someone can help. Have just discovered that I missed my Dd's 16 weeks vaccinations. She is now 9 months blush I had no idea she needed them and am certain the nurse didn't say anything about bringing her back after her 12 week ones. I think they are booster ones following the 12 week ones.

Can she still have them or does she need the whole lot again? I am making an appointment with the nurse but just wanted to find some extra info!

No she just needs the 16 weeks ones, she doesn't need the whole lot again.

My ds hasn't had all of his 16 week ones and he's now 2 and a half. He'll probably be booked in for the remainder in a couple of weeks after the cold spell I think. You just carry on where you left off.

Just book an appt and they will do them - sometimes jabs are brought earlier if there is risk of outbreaks, then they go back to standard intervals, so it's possible you haven't even missed them.

The best advice will be from your GP surgery about what is needed and when to get it done as they will know exactly what was done and what is still due etc. Unlikely to be a big deal overall, they will probably just do the ones that have been missed without a restart.

Thank you for all your advice and reassurance! Have her booked in for next week when hopefully her cold will be better!

Ds had his 8 week jabs at 10 weeks and his 16 week jabs in two lots at 12 months and 14 months. This was because he had constant ear infections, and they wouldn't do them if he had a temperature or were on antibiotics. This was the first chance we had to do them. They then decided because the chance was he would have a temperature and ear infection within 48 hours, they wanted to do the 16 week jabs in two lots so as to not overload the system.

he had the 12 month ones at 21 months after he had grommets in and no longer had ear infections.
