Week 16 Vaccinations - will it matter if they are a week late?

We'll be away on holiday when DS should have his 16 week vaccinations. Will it be OK for him to have them a week later?

yes

We were away for dd3's 16 week jabs - it shouldn't be a problem. The timescale is only a recommendation - some people have the jabs done much later. I wouldn't personally go for that but delaying by a week will be fine.

My 2yo (next month) will be having his 5in1 jab course then.

You can leave them as long as you want to.

The 5in1 jabs start at 8 weeks only because they can't start any earlier. When the appt comes through just let them know you need a different date, it'll be fine.
