My DD had her first MMR vaccine but I completely forgot about her booster. She is now 2 & a half.

I will contact the surgery tomorrow but thought I would ask on here too.

they get the booster any time after 3years 4 months so you are not late for it, you are early. immunisation schedule

thanks! that is so weird because I was convinced I was. Our surgery does not send any reminders -although I should not try & shift the blame.

Thanks again.

as long as there is 3 months in between first and booster you can have it anytime
my surgery does one at 13 mths and one at 16mths as we are in a measles outbreak area

I think it is the 16 mths one I missed. She had the 13 month one.
