Ds is due his second dose of the MMR, nurse has requested a letter from the allergy clinic stating that ds will be ok to have the second dose and allergy clinic don't write routine letters but have said they are happy to speak to the nurse/doctor giving the vaccination.
Ds was fine after first dose of MMR but now their handling of the situation is sending me into a bit of a panic....

I don't know why they have an issue either, still waiting to hear what the nurse says about allergy clinic not providing letter of confirmation.And looking into it a bit further myself apparently the MMR vaccine is fine for egg allergy sufferers anyway due to being grown on chick cells....
