Dd had all the vaccinations when she was meant to have them, minus the new meningitis vaccine.
She didn't have her 12 month ones (surgery cancelled, we moved etc) and an appointment has been made for her for tomorrow.
The letter says she is having: 1st diph, tet, apert, polio, hib & pneumococcal booster & mmr 1 & 1st menb.
I can't find her record book since the move but surely she would have had some of these already? I feel really uncertain about her having so many vaccines in one go. Is this because we waited 6 months, so she has to start all over again?
Found her baby book. She's had some of the ones mentioned in the letter as that's the 5 in 1 which she's had.
So I think she just needs the hib/men c, mmr and pcv according to nhs website. (And men b if we decide to give it). But then as we've waited 6 months to have them, I'm wondering I the reason they put them on this letter is because she had to has to start all over again?
The schedule in her book doesn't mentioned the men b though. I guess I'll have to take the book with me tomorrow and see what they say. Just feel a bit anxious about not being sure what she's having/how many she's having. Hopefully it'll be ok though! Does the MMR have side effects? I don't really want to Google as I can guess the autism debate will come up!
I've written down what the nhs vaccination schedule says she needs at 13 months, and will see what they say. I think I will request to leave the men b one for today and come back another time as I don't feel happy her having that and the MMR in one go. Will have to see what they say though. Feeling nervous about it - I'm needle phobic so trying to control my anxiety as I don't want her being like me!! Hopefully it'll all be ok though.
Sorry that you had to deal with rudeness. I know lots of parents who separated them - Many because it's recommended to give calpol with the menb because of the risk of fever whereas that's not recommended with other vaccines because it can interfere with immune response. At least it's done now!
She was very judgemental, told us off for being late having the vaccines, didn't acknowledge dd or say hello or bye to her when dd did. She told us we had to consent to men b today or she couldn't have it. I said no and said I won't be bullied or pressured into making that decision today, so suddenly we were allowed to come back in 4 weeks for the men b!
I didn't actually know you're not meant to give calpol for other vaccines, so that's good to know. Thank you
