Hello to all the mums here!

I have a 9 months old baby and I was only recently advised after the 9months old health check that my lo needs to have the BCG vaccination. I was advised to contact Minet Clinic, which I have done, but unfortunately all the clinics have stopped booking appointments at the moment, due to the shortage of the vaccine all over the UK. After checking daily for any cancellation, I managed to get a date for BCG vaccination on 20th of June 2016. Unfortunately, from the 13th of June until the 3rd of July we have booked tickets to Greece, where I come from, for the baby's christening.

I have contacted Minet Clinic to ask if it's possible to exchange a date with some other parent who has booked before the 12th June 2016 of after the 3rd of July, but they advised that I can only do so, only if I know some other parent who has already booked appointment for vaccination at the clinic and we both agree to exchange dates.

I was wondering if there is any mum on here, who has booked an appointment there on the aforementioned dates and who is willing to exchange date with me.

I am really worried as in a couple of months we are going to visit India, where my husband comes from, and as the rates of TB are extremely high there I wouldn't want to risk it.

Thank you in advance.
