I'd delay his jabs until he's well. Does your GP do the jabs at the same time as the baby's 8 week check?

When my ds2 had this was about seven weeks my gp gave some saline (i think, don't quote me) solution to put up his nose to thin the mucous out. He wasn't feeding because he couldnt breath. It did the trick

you can buy some saline drops over the counter at any chemist. Its probably worth giving them a go before going to GP. He's unlikely to treat him with antibiotics unless its obvious he has a secondary infection eg; chest infection; ear infection.

antibiotics will not clear up a cold. You just have to let it run it's course. Postpone the injections until he is better. The GP can do nothing. Green snot means he's getting over it.
