Hi, my DD has her 8 week jabs tomorrow. Its been a while since I took a baby for these so I can't remember where they are administered. Does anyone know? TIA

Thighs. Mine had his 7 weeks ago!

Thighs for first three sets.

One injection in each thigh, plus the oral rotavirus vaccine which my dd was given first, but apparently some nurses prefer to give it second.

Fab, thank you for letting me know!!

Legs when they're under one, usually arms over age one.

And oral rotavirus vaccine in the mouth.

Don't give calpol before you go, it can make the vaccines less effective.

Yes I'd read that sidge, good tip! I'd happily give her calpol if she needed it afterwards but hopefully she will just breezethrough them all like DD1 did (desperately keeping fingers crossed on this as I am dreading it sad) Thanks all!!
