I thought that the pre-school booster was just the MMR. That's what ds1 got. But another thread tonight mentions something about getting the diphtheria/tetanus/etc jab as well. How many jabs are there in the pre-school boosster. I've been telling dd that it's one injection, I need to change the script and prepare her if it's more than one injection.

DS had his pre-school booster a month ago and it was two injections one in each arm...can't remember what they were though.

Its 2 injections, MMR and tetanus, diptheria, whooping cough and polio booster. Normally one in each arm

There's going to be a hib booster as well from September, for children born between March 2003 and September 2005. But that will be part of one of the other injections.
